Homework Help: 8th gr. Algebra

Posted by Kelsie on Tuesday, October 28, 2008 at 4:25pm.

I have 3 math problems for homework that are stumping me. Can anyone help guide me? Thanks! Here they are:

1. A full bucket of water weighs eight kilograms. If the water weighs five times as much as the empty bucket, how much does the water weigh?

2. Helen has twice as many dimes as nickels and five more quarters than nickels. The value of her coins is $4.75. How many dimes does she have?

3. Ly has three more dimes than nickels and twice as many quarters as dimes. The value of his coins is $9.60. How many of each kind of coin does he have?
