  1. d = 2 q
    n = d + 22
    p = 3 n

    end of what you asked

    Now you did not ask but the number of cents collected is
    p + 5 n + 10 d + 25 q

    put all in terms of pennies p
    n = p/3
    d = p/3 - 22
    q = 2/2 = p/6 - 11
    so
    total cents = p + 5p/3 + 10p/3-220 +25 p/6 - 275

    = 61 (p/6) - 250
