a). 5n + 10n + 25n = 510
b). n + 3n + 2n = 510
c). 5n + 30n + 50n = 510
a). 5n + 10n + 25n = 510
b). n + 3n + 2n = 510
c). 5n + 30n + 50n = 510

If number of nickel = n
number of dimes = 3n
number of quarters = 2n
Amount of nickel = 5n
Amount of dimes = 30n
Amount of quaters = 50n
Total Amount = 5n + 30n + 50n = 510
In short, Your Answer would be Option C
Hope this helps!
