    For number one, you need to take the combined age and subtract 8 and then divide by 2.

    Once you divide by two you add the 8 back to one of the 2 numbers and thats belinda age.

    If you take the equation 30*.10 you get 3 then add 16*.25 you get 7. 7 is the total amount the money adds up to and there is exactly 46 dimes and quarters used.
