A charity organization is collecting change to raise monay. They have collected twice as many dimes as quarters, 22 more nickels than dimes, and 3 times as many pennies as nickels
b) use you defines variable to write algebraic expressions to represent the number of quarters,dime.nickels,and pennies collected.

d = 2 q
n = d + 22
p = 3 n
end of what you asked
Now you did not ask but the number of cents collected is
p + 5 n + 10 d + 25 q
put all in terms of pennies p
n = p/3
d = p/3  22
q = 2/2 = p/6  11
so
total cents = p + 5p/3 + 10p/3220 +25 p/6  275
= 61 (p/6)  250
