# of coins X Value per coin = Total Value
Nickels X 5 i
Dimes ii 10 iii

You can put this solution on YOUR website! This is a word problem with coins.
What do we know ?
There are 30 coins and the coins are nickels and dimes
we also know their value.
now we have two equations with two unknowns so we can solve it.
