1. A quarter is worth...well...a quarter dollar. That's 25 cents.

A penny is worth 1 cent.

Start not with the mathmatical formula, but with a statement.

"If I take some number of quarters and add some number of pennies, I will have 60 dollars."

"If I take some number of quarters..."

Some number of quarters. Quarters starts with a "q" so let's call that number "q." A quarter is 25 cents. So

.25 q

.25q +

"Some number of pennies."
Pennies starts with a p, so let's call "some number" "p." A penny is worth one cent, so
.01p

Now we have
.25q + .01p

"I will have"
Adding them together gives you a new number. That means is equals something.
=

.25q + .01p =

"60 dollars."

.25q + .01p = 60

Now, you will not be able so solve this yet. You would have to know how many coins there are to do that.
