    Kids' Cash


    Carmen, Jordy, Mariah, and Ronnie each have less than $1.00 to spend at the snack bar. Altogether they have $3.26, all in coins, including 7 quarters, 1 penny, and the same number of dimes as nickels. Each person has 7 coins. They each have a different number of dimes.

    Jordy has more dimes but fewer quarters than anyone else.
    Ronnie has the most money, and Jordy has the least.
    Mariah is the only one who has a penny.
    Ronnie has the same number of nickels as Jordy, and Carmen has the same number as Mariah.
    Ronnie has the same number of nickels as quarters, but more dimes than nickels.
    What combination of coins, and how much money, does each person have?
