Q:
# Ella has only quarters and nickels in her wallet. She has 2 more quarters than nickels. The total value of the coins is $2.00. How many of each coin does Ella have? Select the answers from the drop-down menus to correctly complete the statement.

Accepted Solution

A:

A) N + 2 = Q

B) .05N + .25Q = 2

A) N -Q + 2 = 0

multiplying B) by 4

B) .2N + Q = 8

then we add A and B

1.2N +2 = 8

1.2N = 6

Nickels = 5

Quarters = 7

B) .05N + .25Q = 2

A) N -Q + 2 = 0

multiplying B) by 4

B) .2N + Q = 8

then we add A and B

1.2N +2 = 8

1.2N = 6

Nickels = 5

Quarters = 7
