Ms. Mendez has \$0.93 in her purse. She has 9 coins. She has two more dimes than quarters. What coins does she have?

Start with one quarter, 3 dimes. That is 55cents, and you have 5 coins left to make 38 cents? I don't see how.

So try 2 quarters, 4 dimes. That is six coins, which is 90 cents. You have three coins left, can you make 3 cents with those three coins?
