#1**+3 **

One number is x

the other is x+3 they add up to 27 x + x+3 = 27

x = number of quarters .25x = amount of money in quarters

x+5 = mumber of dimes .10(x+5) = amount of money in dimes

added together these two amounts = 4.00

.25 x + .10(x+5) = 4.00 solve for x (number of quarters) then x+ 5 = number of dimes
