We do not do your work for you. Once you have attempted to answer your questions, we will be happy to give you feedback on your work. Although it might require more time and effort, you will *learn more* if you do your own work. Isn't that why you go to school?

However, I will give you a start.

1. Let x = 1 peso coins and y = 5 peso coins

y = 5x

x + y = 205

Substitute 5x for y in second equation and solve for x. Insert that value into the first equation and solve for y. Check by inserting both values into the second equation.
