7.4B HW Answers 2. Jose has $2.45 in nickels and dimes. He has ten more nickels than dimes. How many of each does he have? 0.05n + 0.10d = 2.45 5n + 10d = 245 n = d + 10 = 13 + 10 = 25 5(d + 10) + 10d = 245 5d + 50 + 10d = 245 15d + 50 = 245 15d = 195 d = 13 3. A jar filled with only dimes and quarters contains a total of 59 coins. The value of all the coins in the jar is $9.65. How many quarters are in the jar? 0.10d + 0.25q = 9.65 (–10) d + q = 59 10d + 25q = 965 + -10d–10q = -590 15q = 375 q = 25 4. Ernie has $3.65 in nickels and dimes. He has 13 more nickels than dimes. How many of each coin does he have? 0.05n + 0.10d = 3.65 5n + 10d = 365 n = d + 13 = 20 + 13 = 33 5(d + 13) + 10d = 365 5d + 65 + 10d = 365 15d + 65 = 365 15d = 300 d = 20 5. A jar filled with only nickels and quarters contains a total of 65 coins. The value of all the coins in the jar is $9.65. How many quarters are in the jar? 0.05n + 0.25q = 9.65 (–5) n + q = 65 + 5n + 25q = 965 -5n – 5q = -325 20q = 640 q = 32 6. Tickets to a local movie were sold at $6.00 for adults and $4.50 for students. If 210 tickets were sold for a total of $1,065, how many student tickets were sold? 6a + 4.50s = 1065 (–600)a + s = 210 600a + 450s = 106500 +-600a–600s = -126000 -150s = -19500 s = 130 7.
