Mx. Ortiz has $15.68 in pennies and nickels. If there are three times as many nickels as pennies, how many pennies and nickels does Mx. Ortiz have?

 p = pennies        1p  = value of pennies

n = nickles..... this equals  3p  ( this is given in the Q)  ....value of nickles =  5 (3p) 

                 summed thes equal 1568

 

1p      +      5(3p)        = 1568

16p = 1568                       solve for p, the number of pennies      then  # nickles = 3 * p
