**JJ**, Wednesday, September 14, 2011 at 12:06am18 dimes = 1.80

7 qtrs = 1.75

Total = the $3.55

Can you work it backwards, as I have no idea how to set an equation. It was instinct for me to see that initially I had to break the 55-cents down and then work with the $3.00.

I'm sorry I can't help with setting the equation. JJ

**Cadavz**, Wednesday, September 14, 2011 at 2:21amTotal number of coins = 25

Number of dimes = x

Number of quarters = 25 - x

Value of 1 dime = .10

Value of 1 quarter = .25

Total value of coins = $3.55

The equation:

.10(x) + .25(25 - x) = 3.55

.10x + 6.25 - .25x = 3.55

-.15x + 6.25 = 3.55

-.15x = -2.7

x = 18 dimes

25 - x = 25 - 18 = 7 quarters
