It could be any order for this one.@Luis Rivera if you divide by 10 that would be 1 5 dollar bill but the question isn't asking to divide by ten. :P

So, r u saying its 1

x+y=8
5x+10y=50

I think that it would be 1 five dollar bill but I'm not really positive on that because it could be in any order :P

- anonymous

@benice where did the 8 come from?

- anonymous

you have eight bills made of x number of 5s and y number of tens

- anonymous

x+y=8
5x+10y=50
hmm....how would you solve that? O.o

- anonymous

x=6 y=2

- anonymous

Huh?

- anonymous

I think benice is right. the other one would be a little confusing :P

- anonymous

x+y=8
5x+10y=50
x=6 and y=2
x is 5 dollar bills
y is 10 dollar bills

- anonymous

nope thats not right...
Check: 5(5) + 10(10) = 50 thats not right :P
25+100 doesnt equal 50 so this problem is confusing as butternots..O.o

- anonymous

no wait thats right lol never mind I checked wrong!

- anonymous

what is the number

- anonymous

so there are 6 Five dollar bills and 2 Ten dollar bills

- anonymous

10+10+5+5+5+5+5+5=50

- anonymous

just one number

- anonymous

Omg! Just get this:
x+y=8
5x+10y=50
x=6 and y=2
x is 5 dollar bills
y is 10 dollar bills
-------------------------------------------------------
Just write all that down for this problem! -__-

- anonymous

If you want just one number than put 6.

- anonymous

there not bubbling answer i have to write in the box small, skinny boxes write it in then bubble under

- anonymous

Alright so put 6. because thats how many five dollar bills there would be.

- anonymous

Dude @Luis Rivera it could be MANY different combinations but due to that equation shown by @benice it makes things easier for her. More equations will confuse her more, the answer is 6. and she's done come on now :P
