First, make a chart of what we know: # dimes = "d"; 0.10 each; total cents in dimes = 10d # nickels = 86 - d, 0.05 each; total cents in nickels = 5(86-d) Total number/value of…

In other words, a half a trunk of dimes would have at least the same number of that coin as a full trunk of nickels. However each dime is worth twice as much so the half-trunk of dimes would be worth more…

### What has more value - a truckload of nickels or half a truckload of dimes?

The half truckload of dimes is more valuable. If comparing the value of "half as many" dimes (10 cents) to nickels (5 cents), the value would be the same. But a "truckload," using the same type of truck, would be based on weight or volume. In either case, you have more value in the smaller, lighter dimes.

Then I knew that the number of pennies had to be 0, 5, or 10 since there is no…
