Answer: THere are 33 quarters and 151 nickles Step-by-step explanation: Let q be the number of quarters in the bag Let n be the number of nickles in the bag Because there are a total of 184 we have a equation: q + n = 184 Because the total value of the coins is$15.80 so we have another equation

0.25q + 0.05n = \$15.80

<=> q + 0.2n = 63.2

We have q + n – (q + 0.2n) = 184 – 63.2

<=> 0.8n = 120.8

<=> n = 151

<=> q = 184 – 151 = 33
