Bonzo has some nickles and some quarters. 52 coins all together. The total value of the coins is $8.20. Find the number of pickles and the number of quarters.
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
Let the number of nickles be n and number of quarters be q
n + q = 52
Hence n = 52 -q
Value equation is determined as under in terms of cents
5 n + 25 q = 820
5 (52-q) + 25q = 820
260 - 5q +25q = 820
20q = 560
q = 28
Hence n = 52-28 = 24
Number of nickels = 24 and number of quarters = 28
