suzanna has a total of $3.60 in nickels and dimes. If her dimes were nickels and her nickels were dimes then she would have $5.40. How many coins does suzanna have?
initially, let x = number of nickels and y = number of dimes. 0.05x + 0.10y = 3.60 now the amount of nickels and dimes are inverted: so, 0.10x + 0.05y = 5.40 solve for x and y. lmk if you want the next step
glad i could help :)
