# Money

Chen checked his wallet to see how much money he had. He counted *n* quarters, 8 fewer dimes than quarters, and 3 times as many nickels as quarters.

- Write an expression that represents the amount of money Chen has.
- Explain what each term in the expression represents.
- Evaluate the expression for
*n*= 10.

## Hint:

- Write an expression that represents the number of dimes. If there are 8 fewer dimes than quarters, that means there are
*n-8*dimes. - Write an expression that represents the number of nickels.
- Then, since you want to represent the total amount, add the expressions together.
