jerome has 24 coins in his pocket.he has 1/4 as many pennies as nickels.the remaining 4 coins are dimes.how many pennies does peter have?

24 coins - 4 dimes = 20 (pennies + nickels)
number of pennies = 1/4 nickels
20 = 4 pennies + 16 nickels

He has four dimes
That leaves 20 that are pennies or nickels.
1/4 of 16 is 4, and 16 + 4 = 20
