**Bosnian**, Wednesday, April 11, 2012 at 8:25pmA quarters is worth 25 cents and a dime is worth 10 cents.

q = numbers of a quarters

d = numbers of a dimes

q + d = 8

q = 8 - d

Value of money :

10 ¢ * d + 25 ¢ * q = 170 ¢

10 d + 25 q = 170

10 d + 25 ( 8 - d ) = 170

Equation b.

10 d + 25 ( 8 - d ) = 170

10 d + 25 * 8 + 25 * ( - d ) = 170

10 d + 200 - 25 d = 170

10 d - 25 d = 170 - 200

- 15 d = - 30 Divide both sides by - 15

d = - 30 / - 15

d = 2

q = 8 - d = 8 - 2 = 6

2 dimes and 6 quarters

2 * 10 ¢ + 6 * 25 ¢ =

20 ¢ + 150 ¢ = 170 ¢
