The value of cents in n Nickels?
Asked in Math and Arithmetic
You have 7.68 with equal amounts of dimes nickels and pennies. How many dimes do you have?
If you let N represent how many of each coin you have, their values are: N pennies = N cents N nickels = 5N cents N dimes = 10N cents so the total value is N + 5N + 10N = 16N cents. That must be equal to $7.68, or 768 cents, so the final equation is 16N = 768 Solving for N gives you 768/16, or 48 of each coin.
