Homework Help: 3rd Grade Math

Posted by Kathy on Wednesday, October 8, 2008 at 8:54pm.

I thought the simple answer would be 150-70=80 too but, the problem states that she has 70 more nickles than dimes.
So, I was thinking that the answer would be 40 dimes and 110 nickles-which adds up to 150 and 110 is 70 more than 40 but, I don't know how to explain this to my son. I'm probably making this harder than it actually is. Thanks so much for all the help.
