    It can be solved with algebra. Number of quarters = q and number of dimes = d. We have, from the question: d = q+5 (there are five more dimes than quarters), and 10d + 25q = 330 (total amount of money = $3.30, or 330 cents) Putting them together: 10(q+5) +25q = 330 35q + 50 = 330 35q = 280 Therefore q=8, and d=13, as stated above.
