Luis has nickels ($0.05) and dimes ($0.10) in his pocket. How many dimes does he have?

(1) If his dimes were nickels and his nickels were dimes, he would have $1.00 less than he actually has. (2) If half of his coins were pennies ($0.01) and the other half were quarters ($0.25), he would have$2.25 more than he actually has.
