first you make sure you have all your variables using same measurement - cents (since it is the smallest) $100 = 100*100 cents = 100,000 cents 1 quarter = 25 cents 1 nickel = 5 cent 1 dime = 10 cents the test of your problem said that:      you have $100     in       i don't know how many coins   of quarters, nickels and dimes          100,000          =                    X                            *      (25+5+10) we have to find X: 100,000= X *(25+5+10) 100,000= X *40 X= 100,000/40 X = 2,500 coins
