Mercedese had a total of 37 nickles, dimes, and quarters. She had 3 fewer dimes than nickels and 4 more quarters than nickels. How much money did she have?

**DrBob222**, Sunday, September 28, 2008 at 8:09pmn = # nickels

d = # dimes

q = # quarters

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

n+d+q=37

d = n-3

q=n+4

substitute d = n-3 and q = n+4 into the first equation, solve for n, then solve for d and q. I think n = 12 but check my thinking.

Post your work if you get stuck.
