**Answer:**

**Step-by-step explanation:**

Let the number of quarters Matthew has be x.

So, according to the question,

Number of dimes = 2x

Number of nickels = x

Number of penny = 1

Total number of coins = 9

Thus,

x + 2x + x + 1 = 9

4x = 8

So, x = 2

Now, we know that :

1 dime = $0.10

1 quarter = $0.25

1 nickel = $0.05

1 penny = $0.01

Thus, total money Matthew has = 2x($0.10) + x($0.25) + x($0.05) + 1($0.01)

Putting value of x,

Total money = 4($0.10) + 2($0.25) + 2($0.05) + 1($0.01)

= $(0.40 + 0.50 + 0.10 + 0.01)

= **$1.01**
