(2)

Ben had twice as many nickels as dimes. Altogether, Ben had $4.20. how many nickels and how many dimes did Ben have?

The average salary is 360; therefore, the five of them make 360 x 5 = ??

Then 340 + 340 + 345 + 425 + xx=??

You know ?? and the other numbers. Solve for xx.

Post your work if you get stuck.

#nickels = n worth 0.05 each.

#dimes = d worth 0.10 each.

#n(0.05)+#d(0.1)=4.20

since #n = 2*#d, substitute into #n

2*#d(0.05) + #d(0.1) = 4.20

Solve for #d, then multiply by 2 to get #n.

Post your work if you get stuck.
