## Coin problem: A pile of 55 coins consisting of nickels and dimes is worth $3.90. Find the number of each type of coin.

There are 32 nickels and 23 dimes in the pile of 55 coins worth $3.90. To find the answer yourself, refer to the calculations in the steps below.

**Step 1:** Let x equal the number of nickels and y equal the number of dimes. Write an equation equating the pile of nickels and dimes to their value of $3.90. Remember that nickels are worth 5 cents (0.05 dollars), while dimes equal 10 cents (0.10 dollars).

Equation 1: 0.05x + 0.10y=$3.90

**Step 2:** Write an equation showing that there are a total of 55 nickels and dimes. Then express the equation in terms of nickels.

Equation 2: x+y=55

x=55-y

**Step 3:** Substitute equation 2 into equation 1 to solve for the number of dimes.

0.05(55-y)+0.10y=3.90

2.75-0.05y+0.10y=3.90

0.05y=1.15

y=23** dimes**

**Step 4:** Substitute the 23 dimes found in Step 3 into equation 2 to solve for the number of nickels.

x=55-y

x=55-23

x=32** nickels**

**Step 4:** Check that 32 nickels and 23 dimes equal $3.90

32 nickels + 23 dimes=32($0.05)+23($0.10)=$1.60+$2.30=$3.90
