 Question 598095: You have had a tough time lately, bithdays, weddings,etc., and you now only have the money in your piggybank. You manage to shake out 16.00 dollars worth. You are suprised to see that you have the exact same amount of half dollars, quarters, dimes and nickels. How many of each do you have?Answer by ankor@dixie-net.com(15624)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Total value \$16.00 You have the exact same amount of half dollars, quarters, dimes and nickels. How many of each do you have? : Let x = number of each coin : .05x + .10x + .25x + .50x = 16.00 .90x = 16 x = 16/.9 x = 17.77, not an integer, something not right with this problem : If the total was \$18, there would be 20 of each coin.
