Q: In a jar of coins the ratio of nickels to dimes is 57. If the jar contains 350 dimes how many nickels are there?

Write your answer...

The value of the coins is going to be highly dependent upon the ratio of coins. In general: Dimes, quarters and half dollars are roughly $20/lb Nickels are $5/lb And there are 181 pennies to a pound ($1.81) So we're talking any where from $1600 to $150.

dimes : all coins = 6 : 12+6+18 = 6 : 36 = 1×6 : 6×6 = 1 : 6 Dimes are ⅙ of all coins.

14:24, 7:12

If 5 dimes to every 8 quarters that is 5 out of every 13 coins dimes and 8 of 13 coins quarters 5/13 x 520 = 200 dimes

Not enough information is given. You have to know how many of each coin is in the box, or at least the ratio of dimes to nickels.Once you have that data, you can use the following weights for current US coins to figure out the total value:1 nickel = 5.00 gm1 dime = 2.268 gm1 US pound = 453.6 gm

Its on a 1:2 ratio.1 Dime: 2 Nickels. With that in mind, 4 Dimes : 8 Nickels4x 10 = 408x 5 = 40If he has 1 dollar and 80 cents, he has 4 dimes and 8 nickels.Too bad this solution requires him to also have an extra $1 in change (e.g., four quarters.)The real answer is:d= # of dimesn=# of nickels10d + 5n =180n = 2dSo 20d = 180 and d=9 (nine dimes)substituting into n=2*9 gives n=18 (eighteen nickels)Checking to make sure you don't make the same mistake as the first poster:9*10 + 18*5 = 180 cents.

A nickel is worth 5¢ so 18 of them total 90¢ A dime is 10¢ so 14 dimes is $1.40, or 140¢. Therefore the ratio is 90:140, or 9:14 in lowest terms.

15 cents : 20 cents OR 3 cents : 4 cents sources: geometry

The ratio of pennies to dimes is 10 to 1.

In the number of coins the raio of 4 dimes to 3 quarters is 4:3. In terms of money amount, 4 dimes equals 40 cents and 3 quarters equals 75 cents, so the ratio is 40:75. This can be reduced to 8:15.

More information is needed. What are the other denominations? Is there a limit to the other denominations? Are they in a ratio or other relationship versus the number of nickels? Please post a new, separate question.

12 pennies/5 quarters or 7 dimes/15 nickels (turn them all in pennies) 12/125 >? 70/75 12/125 >? 70÷5/75÷5 12/125 >? 14/15 (clearly it seems that 14/15 is greater than 12/125, however cross multiply) 12x15 >? 14x125 180 < 1,750 So that 7 dimes/15 nickels is greater than 12 pennies/5 quarters.

10 dimes make a dollar and 100 pennies make a dollar so the ratio is 1/10.

5/3 - 10 dimes = $1.00 & 12 nickles = $.60, so using .20 as a common factor you would come up with 5/3. I thought this was incorrect until i got it right on my Algebra 101 exam.

The ratio of the value of a penny to the valueof a dime is 1/10 .I have no idea how many pennies or dimes you have, so there's nopossible way to talk about the ratio of their numbers.

A nickel is 5c. So 43*5 is 215c. A dime is 10 cents. Therefore 5x10 is 50. 215:50 is 43:10 and this is most simplified.

3 dimes = 30 cents 8 quarters = 200 cents. So, the ratio is 30/200 or 3/20

2500 nickels into dollars is 125 dollars. This is because the ratio of nickels to dollars is 1:0.05. So 2500 nickels would equal to 125 dollars.

In terms of value, it is 5:1.
