Roma Sherry found some coins while looking under her sofa pillows. there were equal of nickels and quarters, and twice as many half dollers as quarters. if she found $2.60 in all, how many of each denomination of coin did she find?
- Nickels=# Quarters
- Quarters x2=# 1/2 Dollars
2n= 10c 2q= 50c 4 1/2d= $2 =$2.60
number of people seated on floor = f
number of people seated on balcony = b
40f + 28b = 20800
f + b =550
f = 550 - b
40(550-b) + 28b = 20800
22000 - 40b + 28b = -1200
-12b = -1200
12b = 1200
b = 100
f + b = 550
f + 100 = 550
f = 550 - 100
f = 450
number of balcony seats = 100
number of floor seats = 450
