**micheal Garcia**, Thursday, April 5, 2012 at 8:11pmLet no. of dimes = x.

Then, no. of quarters = x + 3 and no. of nickels = x - 5.

Total no. of coins = x + (x + 3) + (x - 5).

This value is equal to 52.

So, x + (x + 3) + (x - 5) = 52

or x + x + 3 + x - 5 = 52

or 3x - 2 = 52

or 3x = 52 + 2 = 54

or x = 54/3 = 18

So Sal have 18 dimes
