Let the number of nickles = N

Then....the number of dimes = 7N

 

And

 

No. of nickles * their value each  + No. of dimes * their value each =  total value

 

So we have

 

N(5) + 7N(10 )  = 300        simplify

 

5N + 70N     =  300

 

75N =  300        divide both sides by 75

 

4 = N     ⇒    [ 4 nickles ]

Each nickel is wort 5 cents, and each dime is worth 10 cents

 

So

 

4 nickels * 5cents   +   7(4) dimes * 10 cents =

 

20 cents +   28 * 10 cents =

 

20 cents + 280 cents =

 

300 cents =

 

$3.00
