this is similar to the question I answered on the question after this:
x+y=21 *total number of dimes and nickels is 21
.05x+.1y=$1.65 *the value of x is .5 and the value of y is .1 so when you multiply it by the number of x and y you get $1.65
now use elimination:
first solve for one variable
now plug "x+21" as "y" in the other equation
now plug 9 as x into the first equation
she has 9 nickels and 12 dimes
check by plugging in answers into both equations:
now apply the same concept to number 2
