Let y = 5$ coins

First equation is for the total amount of coins:

x + y = 18

Second Equation is for total amount in dollars in total from the coins:

2x + 5y = $75

Lets isolate for y

x = 18 - y

Sub into second equation

2(18 - y) + 5y = 75

36 - 2y + 5y = 75

3y = 39

y = 13

Therefore, you must have at least 13 $5 coins.
