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.
