I'm sorry about the other post. I didn't post it. Whoever did post it will not be posting again on this board.

I'm sorry, but I can't help you with this question, but I'm sure someone will show you how to do it.

• algebra -

let the number of nickels be x
let the number of pennies be x+12
let the number of dollar bills be x-5

now we will think of the "value" of our money
1(x+12) + 5(x) + 100(x-5) = 996

solve for x
let me know what you got.

• algebra -

996=5n+p+100d
12+n=p
n-5=d

n=nickels
p=pennies
d=dollars

996=5n+(12+n)+100(n-5)
1484=106n
n=14

p=12+n=12+14=26
d=n-5=14-5=9

double check
996=5(14)+26+100(9)
996=996

hope this helps
