    Coin Collection

    A collection of coins is made up of an equal number of pennies 1 nickelsdimes, and quarters. What is the largest possible value of the collection which is less then $2.00

    p=1 cent nickle= 5 cents d=10 cents q=25 cents

    p+n+d+q= .41

    .41+.41+.41.41=$1.64 so we can only have 4 of each piece

    Value

    You may use this equation since you already found how many coins of each value...

    0.01P+0.05N+0.10D+0.25Q

    Just substitute the quantity for each coin..in this case 4 for each
