my son 10 brought home a page tonite and he did all the questions but the last one and asked me how to figure it out. i am usually fairly good at some of the hard ones he has but this one really stumped me and although i got the answer from ask jeeves i would like for some of you members to see if you can figure this out without asking jeeves LOL or any other search engine. i cant see the formula they use to get to the answer without a lot of scratch paper figureing. maybe thats what the question was for was to make them dig and search through figureing with multiplication and division. heres the question......Sarim has $1 in coins. one-fifth of the coins are dimes, two-fifteenths are nickels, and two-thirds are pennies. how many of each coin does he have.
