I'm sorry about the other post. I didn't post it. Whoever did post it will not be posting again on this board.
I'm sorry, but I can't help you with this question, but I'm sure someone will show you how to do it.

let the number of nickels be x
let the number of pennies be x+12
let the number of dollar bills be x-5
now we will think of the "value" of our money
1(x+12) + 5(x) + 100(x-5) = 996
solve for x
let me know what you got.
