karen saves her change and has dimes nickels and pennies totaling $4.52. If there is 1 more dime than three times the number of nickels and 10 more pennies than nickels, how many of each type of coin are there?

  • math -

    Let N=the number of nickels (5 cents).
    Dimes (10 cents), D = 3N+1
    Pennies (1 cent), P = N+10
    Then
    5N + 10(3N+1) + 1(N+10) = 452
    36N + 20 = 452
    Solve for N (=12) and the rest of the coins.
