Total money $ 101.25

45 more dimes than nickels

3 times as many quarters as dimes.

How many nickels, dimes & quarters?

n nickels

q quarters

d = (n + 45)

q = 3 d so q = 3(n+45)

5 n + 10 d + 25 q = 10125

n + 2 d + 5 q = 2025

so

n + 2 (n+45) + 15 (n+45) = 2025

n + 17(n+45) = 2025

18 n + 765 = 2025

18 n - 1260

n = 70 nickels

you can get the rest now
