# Parker has quarters and dimes in his piggy bank. He has 4 more dimes than quarters, and he has a total of $7.05 in his bank. How many dimes and quarters does Parker have? ##### 1 Answer Oct 15, 2017 No. of quarters $= 19$No. of dimes $= 23$#### Explanation: $1$quarter is $25$$\text{cents}$and $1$dime is $10$$\text{cents}$. Let the number of quarters $= x$. Then, the number of dimes $= x + 4$. So (x*25)+(x+4)*10=$7.05 = "705 cents"

$25 x + 10 x + 40 = 705$

$35 x = 665$

$x = \frac{665}{35} = 19$

Parker has $19$ quarters and $19 + 4 = 23$ dimes in all.
