I think it's 150/2=75 , I may be right, I may be wrong. But I'm not sure.

Let x = # of dimes and y = # of nickels.

y = x + 70

x + y = 150

Substitute x + 70 for y in the second equation.

x + x + 70 = 150

2x = 80

x = 40

y = 110

First, if you have a question, it is much better to put it in as a separate post in <Post a New Question> rather than attaching it to a previous question, where it is more likely to be overlooked.

Second, I am not sure what you are asking. To be completely correct, the sentence should be:

My sister, Kelly, loves cats.

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
