are you kidding me…seriously?! is this thread a joke? if my family is having a party and my cousins are there you bet ill be talking to them regardless of age or gender

What do you mean, why isn’t your cousin or second cousin different then any other girl in the street?

Well, I know of a family that is very big. For the party they would rent a hall and even have a mechitza. I’m referring to a party hosted by a grand-father or you can say great-grand-father, age 98. He even has great grandchildren in the teens.

Let x=number of nickels

Then x+4=number of quarters

So the number of dimes would be:

37-x-(x+4)=

37-2x-4=

33-2x —- is the number of dimes

(lets deal in pennies)

5x+25(x+4)+10(33-2x)=550

so 5x+25x+100+330-20x=550

collect like terms

10x+430=550

subtract 430 from each side

10x+430-430=550-430=

10x=120

divide each side by 10

x=12

number of nickels

x+4=12+4=16

number of quarters

33-2x=33-24=9

number of dimes

Check

5*12=60

25*16=400

9*10=90

60+400+90=550

550=550
