    Let x = the number of quarters then 2x = the numbers of nickels (given) Then 30 - (x + 2x) are the number of dimes. This simplifies to: 30 - 3x Note this is the number of coins (not the value) Now for the money!

    25x is the value of the quarters 10x is the value of the nickels and 10(30-3x) is the value of the dimes.........The total amount is given as 335 cents

    The equation will now look like this: 25x + 10x + 10(30-3x)=335 simplifying 25x +10 x +300 - 30x = 335 5x = 35 can you solve for the number of quarters now ?

    solving for x you would divide both sides by 5 getting x = 7 Or 7 quarters. 2x = 2 (7) = 14 nickels and 30 - 3(7)=30-21=9 dimes.

    To verify 7 + 14 + 9 = 30 which is the number of coin now check the money. 1.75 + .70 + .90 = $3.35 They check out Your are welcome and good luck counting your money.
