Matt has twice as many quarters as dimes in his coin collection. If the dimes and quarters together total $9.00 how many of each kind of coin does he have?

.10*(1/2)x+.25x = 9.00

x(.10*(1/2)+.25)= 9.00

x= 9.00

___(.10*(1/2)+.25)

x = 30

Since you times the dimes by 1/2, you take half of x.

So Dimes = 15, and Quarters = 30

Check, .10(15)+ .25(30) = 9.00
