Meghan has $1.10 in dimes, nickels, and pennies. she has three times as many nickels as pennies, and the number of dimes is two less than the number of pennies. How many dimes, nickels, and pennies does she have?

p=number of pennies

n=number of nickels

d= number of dimes

we have:

(1) 10d+5n+p=110

(2) n=3p

(3) d=p-2

substitue (2)  and (3) in (1) 

10(p-2)+5(3p)+p=10

or:

10p-20+15p+p=110

26p=130

p=5

from (2); n=15

from (3) d = 3
