Marco puts his coins into stacks. Each stack has 10 coins. He makes 17 stacks of quarters. He makes 11 stacks of dimes. He makes 8 stacks of nickels. How much money does Marco have in his stacks of coins?

Value of Quarters:
Quarter Value = Value per quarter * coins per stack * number of stacks
Quarter Value = 0.25 * 10 * 17
Quarter Value = 42.5

Value of Dimes:
Dime Value = Value per dime * coins per stack * number of stacks
Dime Value = 0.10 * 10 * 11
Dime Value = 11

Value of Nickels:
Nickel Value = Value per nickel * coins per stack * number of stacks
Nickel Value = 0.05 * 10 * 8
Nickel Value = 4

Calculate total value of Marco's coin stacks
Total value of Marco's coin stacks = Quarter Value + Dime Value + Nickel Value
Total value of Marco's coin stacks = 42.5 + 11 + 4
Total value of Marco's coin stacks = 57.5
