    Answer:

    The number of nickles in drawer is 20  and

    The number of dimes in drawer is 10  

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given as :

    Total money in nickels and dimes = $ 2

    Let The number of nickels = n

    And The number of dimes = d

    According to question

    The number of nickels is three times number of dimes

    I.e  n = 3 times d

    Or ,  n = 3 d

    ∵  n + d = $ 2

    and 20 nickles = 1 dollar

          10 dimes = 1 dollar

    So, 20 nickles + 10 dimes = $ 1 + $ 1

    or, 20 nickles + 10 dimes = $ 2

    So, number of nickles is 20, and number of dimes is 10

    Hence The number of nickles in drawer is 20  and

    The number of dimes in drawer is 10   answer
