**TchrWill**, Tuesday, April 21, 2009 at 9:50amYou have a total of 21 coins, all nickels and dimes. The total value is $1.70. Write and solve a system of equations to find the number of dimes d and the number of nickels n that you have.

I already wrote the equations: n+d=21 and 10d+5n=1.70. But I don't know how to solve it.

1--n+d=21

2--10d+5n=170

3--From (1), d=21-n

4--Substitute into (2) and solve for n and then d.
