A collection of nickels, dimes and pennies has an average value of 7 cents per coin. If a nickel were replaced by five pennies, the average would drop to 6 cents per coin. What is the number of dimes in the collection?

Try   12 dimes   9 nickles 3 pennies = 168      168/24 = 7

        12 dimes    8 nickles 8 pennies = 168      168/28 = 6
