Two quarters, two dimes, two nickels, and one penny.

A half dollar (50-cent piece), 7 nickels, and a penny.

Six coins that approximate to $.86 (although they are not six different coins) are three quarters ($.75), two nickels ($.10), and one penny ($.01...this is 1 cent, not .1 cents!)Hope this helps!

You can make $0.86 using - (1) Half Dollar ($0.50), (1) Quarter ($0.25), (2) Nickle ($0.10), and (1) Penny ($0.01). 1 - Half Dollar = $0.50 1 - Quarter = $0.25 2 - Dimes = $0.10 1 - Penny = $0.01 5 Coins = $0.86

86 cents.

You only need to solve for the number of either nickels or dimes. You can subtract that number from 86 to find the other. Since dimes are worth more, let's solve for dimes; we'll use the variable "d". First, make a chart of what we know:# dimes = "d"; 0.10 each; total cents in dimes = 10d# nickels = 86 - d, 0.05 each; total cents in nickels = 5(86-d)Total number/value of coins: total number is 86; total value $6.90, or 690 centsNow set up the equation:10d + 5(86-d) = 69010d + (5 . 86) + (5 . - d) = 69010d + 430 - 5d = 6905d + 430 = 6905d + 430 - 430 = 690 - 4305d = 260(1/5)5d = 260 (1/5)d = 52If there are 52 dimes, there must be 34 nickels (86 - 52 = 34).Let's check our work:52 dimes = $5.2034 nickels = $1.70$5.20 + 1.70 = $6.90
