You go to a convenience store to buy candy and find the owner to be rather odd. He allows you to buy pieces only in multiples of tour, and to buy four, you need $0.23. He allows you only to use 3 pennies and 2 dimes. You have a bunch of pennies and dimes, and instead of counting them, you decide to weigh them. You have 636.3 g of pennies, and each penny weighs an average of 3.03 g. Each dime weighs an average of 2.29 g. Each piece of candy weighs an average of 10.23 g.

- How many pennies do you have?
- How many dimes do you need to buy as much candy as possible?
- How much would all of your dimes weigh?
- How many pieces of candy could you buy (based on the number of dimes from part b)?
- How much would this candy weigh?
- How many pieces of candy could you buy with twice as many dimes?
