Please tell me IF there is a solution to this question (or is it misprinted).

Can this be solved?

Jenny has 11 coins in her pocket, all of which are either nickels or dimes. If the value of the coins is 754, how many of each type of coin does she have?

• algebra -

Even if all 11 coins were dimes, the total value would only be 110.

So, no way could the 11 coins total 754.

Thank you!
