Tyler has a total of one hundred ninety-two coins. He has three times as many quarters as nickels and one-half as many nickels as pennies. How much money does he have?

Let the number of pennies ==P

Then, number of nickels ==1/2P

The numbers of quarters ==3 x 1/2P ==1.5P

 

P  +  1/2P +  1.5P ==192

3P ==192 and P ==192 / 3 ==64 - number of pennies he has.

64 / 2 ==32 nickels he has

32 x 3 ==96 quarters he has.

 

[64 x 0.01]  +  [32 x 0.05]  +  [96 x 0.25] ==$0.64  + $1.60  +  $24 ==$26.24 - amount of money Tyler has.
