Q:
# There are two less nickels than dimes, and as many quarters, as nickels and dimes together. The total amount of money is $5.25. How many quarters, dimes, and nickels are there?

Accepted Solution

A:

There are 7 nickels, 9 dimes, and 16 quarters. If you do the math 7 nickels equals 35 cents, 9 dimes equal 90 cents, and 16 quarters equals $4.00, which all adds up to $5.25. Also the numbers follow the rules because 7 is two less than nine and 16 is 9+7.
