Express the given information as an algebraic equation and simplify: Max has \$3.25 in change. He has 5 more dimes than quarters but twice as many nicckles as dimes. . Let x = number of quarters then x+5 = number of dimes 2(x+5) = number of nickles . .25x + .10(x+5) + .05(2(x+5)) = 3.25 .25x + .10(x+5) + .05(2x+10) = 3.25 .25x + .10x+.50 + .10x+5 = 3.25 .45x + .50 + 5 = 3.25 .45x + .55 = 3.25 .45x = 2.70 x = 6 (number of quarters) . number of dimes: x+5 = 6+5 = 11 . number of nickles: 2(x+5) = 2(6+5) = 2(11) = 22
