  1. a. X Quarters.

    b. 2x Dimes.
    (2x+22) Nickels.
    3(2x+22) Pennies.

    c. X + 2x +(2x+22) + 3(2x+22)=2134.
    X + 2x + 2x + 22 + 6x + 66 = 2134
    11x + 88 = 2134
    11x = 2046

    X = 186 Quarters.
    2x = 2*186 = 372 Dimes.
    2x+22 = 372 + 22 = 394 Nickels.
    3(2x+22) = 3 * 394 = 1182 Pennies.
