a jar filled with only nickles and dimes contain a total of 61 coins. the value of all of the coins in the jar is $4.15. how many dimes are in the jar
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
this is a typical 2 variable linear equation system, if we assume that the number of nickles and dime are x and y respectively, then we have
x+y = 61
5x+10y = 415
multiply first eq by 5
we have 5x+5y = 305
subtract it from the second equation, we have
5y = 415-305 = 110
y = 22
x = 39
