The total value of the money is $960. (a) Find the total number of solutions (b) Find the solution with the smallest number of five-dollar bills (c) Find the solution with the largest number of five-dollar bills Thanks September 17th, 2014, 03:37 AM #2 Senior Member Joined: Dec 2013 From: Russia Posts: 327 Thanks: 108 Let$x$,$y$and$z$be the number of five-, ten- and twenty-dollar bills, respectively. Form two equations saying that the total sum is \$960 and the number of bills is 70. Use them to express $x$ and $y$ through $z$. For each $z$, the corresponding values of $x$ and $y$ form a solution of the two equations. You need to observe two restrictions: each of $x$, $y$ and $z$ is an integer and is between 0 and 70. So draw the graphs of $x(z)$ and $y(z)$ and for $0\le z\le 70$ find the interval of $z$ where $0\le x,y\le 70$. The number of integer $z$ in that interval equals the number of solutions.
