**MathMate**, Sunday, April 22, 2012 at 10:10amSolve mentally:

Start with 6 dimes and 1 nickel.

The difference is $0.55.

To get $4.95 as the difference, we have to multiply by the factor $4.95/0.55=9

So there are 54 dimes and 9 nickels.

Solve by algebra:

N=number of nickels

D=6N=number of dimes

0.10D-0.05N=4.95

0.10(6N)-0.05N=4.95

0.55N=4.95

N=4.95/0.55=9 (as before)

D=6*9=54
