    Answer:

    # of 20cent stamps = 8

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let the  number 20cent stamps be = x

    Let the number 60 cents stamps be = y

    Total number of stamps => 20 = x + y ———– ( 1 )

    Total cost of the stamps = 8.80

    That is, 0.20x + 0.60y = 8.80 ————- ( 2 )

          ( 2 ) => 20x + 60y = 880

                => x + 3y = 44

               =>  x = 44 – 3y

    Substitute x in  ( 1 ) => x  +  y = 20

                                     44 – 3y + y = 20

                                         – 2y = 20 – 44

                                         – 2y = – 24

                                           2y = 24

                                           y = 12

    Substitute y = 12 in  ( 1 ) => x + y = 20

                                             x + 12 = 20

                                                x = 8
