Rose counted her money and found that she had $1.35 in nickels andquarters. There are nine more nickels than quarters. How many of each coin does Rose have?

q = quarters =                        value = 25 q

n = # nickels  = q+9               value = 5(q+9)                summed = 135

 

25 q       +   5 (q+9)    = 135         solve for q = # quarters        then #nickels = q+9
