 Example: Jack has \$3.20 in nickels, dimes, and quarters. If there are equal number of nickels as dimes as quarters, how many of each coin are there? Solution: Let 'n' be the number of nickels and 'd' be the number of dimes and 'q' be the number of quarters n = d = q 5n + 10d + 25q = 320 5n + 10n + 25n = 320 40n = 320 n = 8 Therefore n = 8, d = 8 and q = 8 Directions: Solve the following word problems.
