a childs bank contains $6.30 in dimes and quarters. there are twice as many dimes as quarters. how many of each kind of coin are in the bank?

let d = #dimes and q=#quarters.

The total is worth $6.30.

eqn 1 is 0.10*d + 0.25*q=$6.30

eqn 2 is 2*#quarters = #dimes or

2q=d.

Two equatins and two unknowns. Solve for q and d.

Post your work if you get stuck.
