Suppose that Maria has 140 coins consisting of pennies, nickels, and dimes. The number of nickels she has is 9 less than twice the number of pennies; the number of dimes she has is 19 less than three times the number of pennies. How many coins of each kind does she have?

  • algebra - ,

    p = pennies
    2p - 9 = nickles
    3p - 19 = dimes

    p + 2p - 9 + 3p - 19 = 140
    6p - 28 = 140
    6p = 168
    p = 28

    p = pennies = 28
    2p - 9 = nickles = 47
    3p - 19 = 65
