Jo has 37 coins (all nickels, dimes and quarters) worth $5.50. She has 4 more quarters than nickels. How many of each type of coins does she have?

d=#dimes

n=#nickels

q=#quarters.

==============

d+n+q=37

n+4=q

0.1d + 0.05n + 0.25q = 5.50

=============================

three equations.three unknowns.

Solve for d,n,q.
