Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Wouldn't it be 10(x + 3)...etc, cause it says 3 MORE dimes than nickels not sure to add or multiply

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Let x=amount of nickles Then amount of dimes=(x+3) And amount of quarters=(2x5) We then have 5(x)+10(x+3)+25(2x5)=360 Solve: 65x=455 x=7 (we have seven nickles) So we have 9 (2*75) = 9 quarters
