Homework Help: Algebra

Posted by Jason on Wednesday, November 28, 2007 at 9:29pm.

Hi I was wondering if I could get some help on this word problem...

Penny collected some change in preparation for a garage sale. She collected two more nickels that twice the number of dimes and eight fewer quarters that twice the number of nickels. If the value of the quarters was $1.60 greater than four times the value of the nickels and dimes together, what was the total value of the change that Penny collected?

I tried to get some equations of it, but I could only get one.
25q = 4 ( 5n ) + 10d +160
the first equation was too confusing.
Please help.
