Let x be the number of pennies. Since the number of pennies and the number of dimes are equal, x is also the number of pennies. And 46-(x+x); 46-2x be the number of quarters. It is already established that the value of pennies is $0.01, dimes $0.10 and quarters $0.25. (x)(.01)+(x)(.10)+(46-2x)(.25)=4.87 => establishing the equation (x)(1)+(x)(10)+(46-2x)(25)=487 => mult by 100 to computer easily 11x + 1150 - 50x = 487 663 = 39x x = 17 All in all, there are 17 pennies, 17 dimes and 46-(2*17); 12 quarters.
