## Linear Diophantine Equations

What amounts of money can you make with only $5 and$7 bills? Can you make $23 with those 2 types of bills? #### Concept Quizzes #### Challenge Quizzes # Level 2 What is the positive four-digit integer for which: • the first (in other words, the left-most) digit is one-third the second digit, • the third digit is the sum of the first and second digits, • and the last digit is three times the second digit? Find the two digit positive integer that is equal to: • one more than eight times the sum of its digits AND • two more than the product of 13 and the positive difference between its digits. $\large{\begin{array}{ccccccc} && & & \color{blue}X& \color{blue}X & \color{blue}X&\color{blue}X\\ && & & \color{green}Y& \color{green}Y & \color{green}Y&\color{green}Y\\ +&& & & \color{red}Z& \color{red}Z & \color{red}Z&\color{red}Z\\ \hline & & & \color{green}Y& \color{blue}X& \color{blue}X & \color{blue}X&\color{red}Z\\ \hline \end{array}}$ If $$\color{blue}X$$, $$\color{green}Y$$ and $$\color{red}Z$$ are distinct digits in the sum above, then find $$\color{red}Z$$. If you have infinite pennies ($0.01), nickels ($0.05), and dimes ($0.10), in how many different ways can you make change for \$1.00?

Hint: Don't try to list all of the possibilities!

Gummy bears come in packs of 6 and 9. Is there a combination of these packs which gives a total of exactly 100 gummy bears?
