    d=dimes n=nickles The equation would go as follows: .1d+.05n=2.50 There are 11 more dimes tahn nicles which can be represented aas foolows: n=11+d So you would plug in 11+d instead of n

    n=d+11 .05(d+11)+.10d=2.50 .05d+.55+.10d=2.50 .15d=1.95 d=13 n=d+11=24 .05(24)+13(.10)=2.50, true

    umm since dimes are 10 cents you gotta give it a value so we do .10d and since nickles have the value of 5 cents we write it like .05n
