Example:
Ken has 11 more nickels than quarters. How many coins does he have, if the total value of his coins is $2.65?
Solution: Let n be the number of nickels and q be the number of quarters.
Ken has 11 more nickels than quarters can be written as q + 11 = n
There are 25 cents in a quarter and 5 cents in a nickel and 265 cents in $2.65
the total value of his coins is $2.65 can be written in an equation as 10n + 25q = 265
Solving both equations we have
q + 11 = n
25q + 5n= 265
25q + 5(n + 11) = 265
25q + 5n + 55 = 265
30q = 210
q = 210/30 = 7
n = q + 11
n = 7 + 11 = 18

Example:

Solution:

= 23 dollars
