**Courtney**, Wednesday, April 8, 2009 at 6:19pmi used the equation: 1/2x+1/4x+3=x

then add 1/2x and 1/4x: 3/4x+3=x

then subtract 3/4x on both sides:3=1/4x

then divide by 1/4x: 12=x

-12 coins is the answer :)

**Reiny**, Wednesday, April 8, 2009 at 6:20pm1/2 + 1/4 = 3/4

so 3/4 of his coins must be made up of pennies and quarters.

so that means the remaining 1/4 must be dimes

But we know that he has 3 dimes

think this way: 1/4 of what number is 3 ?

or

3 divided by 1/4 is .... ?
