Your piggy bank has a total of 46 coins in it; some are dimes and some are quarters. If you have a total of $7.00, how many quarters and how many dimes do you have? (2 points)
do I get 2 points for answering this?
ha just kidding, I think this is a a algebraic substitution problem. Let me just work it out on some paper
Thank you jarobins your a big help (: !
Let D be the number of dimes, Q be the number of quarters. Write an equation for the total number of coins. 1.D%2BQ=46 Write an equation for the total value of the coins. 2.10D%2B25Q=700 Multiply eq. 1 by -10 and add to eq. 2, -10D-10Q%2B10D%2B25Q=-460%2B700 15Q=240 Q=16 Then from eq. 1, D%2BQ=46 D%2B16=46 D=30 Thirty dimes and sixteen quarters.
