so 1/5 of the candles are left or 8 are left
so she must have had 40 candles
check: 4/5 of 40 = 32
so she has 8 left.
#2. let the number of quarters be x
then the number of dimes is 2x
and the number of nickels is 2x
25x + 10(2x) + 5(2x) = 165
55x = 165
x = 3
there are 3 quarters, 6 dimes and 6 nickels.
check: 3(25) + 6(10) + 6(5) = 165
