Bill and Rosa have only nickels and dimes. Rosa has 75 cents and Bill has 90 cents. Each has the same number of coins and Bill has the same number of dimes as Rosa has nickels. How many nickels does Rosa have?

    If "each has the same number of coins and Bill has the same number of dimes as Rosa has nickels", then
    obviously Bill will have to have the same number of nickels as Rosa has dimes

    Bill: number of dimes ---x , number of nickels ---y
    Roas: number of dimes --y , number of nickels ---x

    Bill equation: 10x + 5y = 90
    Rosa equation: 10y + 5x = 75

    I would double one of them and subtract, easy after that.
