Peggy had three times as many quarters as nickels. She had $1.60 in all. How many nickels and how many quarters did she have?

7 quarters and 11 nickles

19 Quarters & 11 Nickels Let X = number of quarters & Y = number of nickels So, X = Y +8 (8 more quarters than nickels) 0.25*X + 0.05*Y = 5.30 Substitute first equation for x into second equation: 0.25*(Y+8) + 0.05*Y = 5.30 0.25Y + 2 + 0.05Y = 5.30 0.30Y + 2 = 5.30 0.30Y = 3.3 Y = 11 nickels, so the number of quarters X = 19 We can check these values with the second equation: 0.25*19 + 0.05*11 4.75 + 0.55 = 5.30

This question cannot be answered.Assume there is1 nickel. There must be 3 more than that in quarters - that makes4 quarters and there are13 dimes---- that adds up to18

Call the number of nickels n and the number of quarters q. From the problem statement, q = n + 78 and 25q + 5n = 3240. Substituting the first equation into the second yields 25(n + 78) + 5n = 3240, or 30n = 3240 - 1950 or n = 1290/30 = 43 nickels.
