# How many quarters and dimes does Andrew have if he counted that he had 22 coins that amounted to $4? ##### 1 Answer Nov 5, 2014 Notice that a quarter is 15 cents more that a dime. Let us start with $22$dimes, which amounts to only$2.20. Since he is $4.00 -$2.20 = $1.80 short, he needs to replace $180 \div i \mathrm{de} 15 = 12\$ dimes into quarters. Hence, Andrew has 12 quarters and 22 - 12 = 10 dimes.

I hope that this was helpful.
