I just joined today, thank you for making this forum. I will be coming here often, again thank you all so much.

Here is the problem.

The problem starts with coins in a jar and I must come up with the number of coins of each denomination. The number of quarters is unknown, number of dimes unknown, number of nickels unknown, and number of pennies unknown.

Here on the known parts of the equation.

- There are a total of 471 coins worth $43.13.

- Two Susan B. Anthony dollars, a bunch of quarters, a whole lot of dimes, a good number of nickels and a fair quantity of pennies.

- The number of nickels is equal to the number of quarters plus the number of dollars.....{so I figure this, n = q + 2}

The number of pennies is only one more than the number of dimes. .. {so I figure this, p + 1 = d}

A. Generate and solve the linear equations for this problem.

B. How many coins, of each type (Susan B Anthony dollars, quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies) are in the jar?

Thank you all in advance. I will make a second post right after this one showing what I have so far. Please tell me what I do and do not have correct.
