Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Let\[n_1, n_{10}\]be the number of $1 and $10 bills respectively. You know that\[n_1=n_{10}+150\]since the number of 1s is 150 more than the number of 10s. You also know\[6750=n_1$1+n_{10}$10\]that is\[6750=n_1+10n_{10}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sub. the expression for n_1 into the second equation to find\[6750=(n_{10}+150)+10n_{10}=11n_{10}+150\]
