A collection of coins has a value of 64 cents. There are two more nickels than dimes and three times as many pennies as dimes. How many of each kind of coins are there?

1. Reiny

number of dimes ---- x
number of nickels ----x+2
pennies --------- 3x

10x + 5(x+2) + 1(3x) = 64

solve for x, then sub into my definitions.
