A motel clerk counts $1 and $10 bills at the end of the day. He finds that he has a total of 68 bills having combined monetary value of $248. Find the number of bills of each denomination that he has.

Denomination Number of Bills Total Value

$1. x

$10. y

Total. $68 $248

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

We have to solve the equation system : x+y=68 (1) and x+10y=248 (2)

You substract (1) from (2), you have 9y=248-68=180 so y=180/9=20

x=68-y=68-20=48

Finally x=48 and y=20

Hope it helps !!!
