Answer

False

Work Step by Step

We know that Jack has 15 coins, and X represents the number of dimes. To find the number of quarters, we subtract the number of dimes from all the coins he has. So, 15 - X is the amount of quarters he has. Since 15 - X isn't equal to X - 15, the answer to this question is false.
