My teacher didn't explain this to me very well and now I need help because there is a test on Monday.

The main trouble with solving word problems is translating from "English" to "Math." The trouble here could be that you may not realize that there are two equations involved! In is easy to see that there are 32 coins in total; it was stated as such! But realizing (and figuring out) the second equation, which represents the coins in terms of their cost, is much harder to see.
