Where you from?

Seems you are not in the US cuz they are US currency values.

Nickles are 5 cent coins and quarters are 25 cent coins.

We'll state what a nickel and a quarter mean. Just in case.

Thanks.

Algebraic solution to M04, Q22:

x = no. of nickels, y = no. of quarters

S1. 0.05x + 0.25y = 0.85 not sufficient
S2. y > x not sufficient
S1 & S2 Together:
Since, from S1, x = 17 - 5y,
y > 17 - 5y,
6y > 17, and
y > 2.
Johnny has 3 quarters, since 4 quarters is \$1.00 > \$0.85
sufficient
