Question:

Peter has six times as many dimes as quarters in her piggy bank. She has 21 coins in her piggy bank totaling $2.55 How many of each type of coin does she have?

Blaise B.
Answer:

Let x be the number of quarters. Let 6x be the number of dimes Since one quarter equals 25 cents, x quarters equals x × 25 cents or 25x cents Since one dime equals 10 cents, 6x dimes equals 6x × 10 cents or 60x cents Since one 1 dollar equals 100 cents, 2.55 dollars equals 2.55 × 100 = 255 cents Putting it all together, 25x cents + 60x cents = 255 cents 85x cents = 255 cents 85x cents / 85 cents = 255 cents / 85 cents x = 3 6x = 6 × 3 = 18 Therefore Peter has 3 quarters and 18 dimes
