## Homework Statement

Laura has $1.50 in dimes and nickels. She has twice as many dimes as

nickels. How many dimes does she have?

## The Attempt at a Solution

12 dimes and 6 nickels, duh.

The actual question is, how would I explain this to an elementary school child who has never had any experience with systems of equations? (the way I did it)
