14 quarters plus 15 dimes plus 12 nickels and 5 pennies is a total amount of $5.65

The answer depends on the constraints of the problem.If you are required to have at least one of each of the named coins: 4 pennies, 2 nickels, 1 dime, and 3 quarters is 99 cents ($0.99).If you just have to pick from these, but not necessarily choose at least one of each: 4 pennies, 0 nickels, 9 dimes, 3 quarters is $1.69

The question suggests that there are 24 coins. 13 of them are pennies, 14 are nickels, and 16 are dimes and the rest are quarters. To answer this question, One would add the number of pennies, nickels, and dimes and subtract the sum of those coins from 24. The difference of the two numbers would be the amount of quarters. However, 13+14+16=43. 24-43= -19 There can't be -19 quarters.

There are probably hundreds of variations to get to that amount. Using the fewest coins possible, it would take 26 quarters, 1 nickel, and 1 cent.

The coins in a cash register amount to $12.50. One coin combination that would produce this total is 40 quarters, 19 dimes, 2 nickels, and 50 pennies. Another combination is 20 quarters, 50 dimes, 45 nickels, and 25 pennies.

You could have: 8 nickels and 1 penny or 6 nickels and 11 pennies or 4 nickels and 21 pennies or 2 nickels and 31 pennies. The option of 0 nickels and 41 pennies is excluded by the necessity that the amount is made up of dimes, nickels and pennies; 0 nickels would mean the $1.21 was made up of dimes and pennies only.

$1.19 made up of one half dollar, one quarter, four dimes, and 4 pennies

A nickel is 5 cents and a quarter is 25 cents so there are five times as many nickels as quarters in any amount. That means 20 quarters is the same as 20*5 = 100 nickels.

A dollar is 100 cents, a quarter is 25 cents, and a nickel is 5 cents. Thus a dollar is composed of 4 (100/25) quarters, or 20 (100/5) nickels. Therefore there are 5 times as many nickels in a dollar as there are quarters. Another way to look at it is to say that there are 5 nickels in a quarter, so there are 5 times as many nickels as quarters in any amount.

void calcCoins(int amount) { const int valQ = 25; const int valD = 10; const int valN = 5; const int valP = 1; int numQ = 0; int numD = 0; int numN = 0; int numP = 0; // Count number of quarters. while( amount >= valQ ) { ++numQ; amount -= valQ; } // Count number of dimes. while( amount >= valD ) { ++numD; amount -= valD ; } // Count number of nickels. while( amount >= valN ) { ++numN; amount -= valN ; } // Count number of pennies. while( amount >= valP ) { ++numP; amount -= valP ; } printf("Quarters: %d\n", numQ); printf("Dimes: %d\n", numD); printf("Nickels: %d\n", numN); printf("Pennies: %d\n", numP); printf("Total coins: %d\n", (numQ + numD + numN + numP)); }

There are at least two different ways: 2 quarters 3 dimes 1 nickel 15 pennies 21 total 1 quarter 3 dimes 7 nickels 10 pennies 21 total The system is to go through and make a systematic list now go to the maximum amount of dimes you may find more answers.

Since 8 quarters equals $2, you must have fewer than 8 quarters. You can start with a guess and then refine it. If you have 5 quarters, that is $1.25. Then, 5 dimes is $0.50 and 5 nickels is $0.25. The total of $1.25 + 0.50 + 0.25 = 2.00.

You almost scared me with this one, but I'll give it a go. Easy ones first: (1) 3 quarters (2) 7 dimes; 1 nickel (3) 15 nickels Then it gets tricky: (4) 2 quarters, 5 nickels (5) 2, quarters, 2 dimes, 1 nickel (6) 1 more time to convert 1 dime into 2 nickels (7) 1 quarter, 10 nickels (8) 1 quarter, 5 dimes (9-12) 4 more times to convert each dime, but 1, into 2 nickels (13-18) 6 more times to convert each dime, but 1, into 2 nickels. Did I miss any? 18 different ways (thank goodness you didn't include pennies!)

You can figure this out by experimenting a bit. Obviously, to have that many coins, most of the coins must be pennies. Also, the number of pennies must be a multiple of 5, since all coins larger than pennies are multiples of 5. If you use 45 pennies and 8 nickels, you have the right amount of coins, but not enough money. The solution turns out to be 45 pennies, 4 nickels, and 4 dimes.

infinite amounts of money... unless you have a limited amount of each coin

92 quarters is equal to 23 dollars. 46 dimes is equal to 4 dollars and sixty cents. 23 nickels is equal to one dollar and fifteen cents. Together, the amount is equal to $28.75

Denomination values should be stored in an integer array where each value is in pennies. So $100 is 10000 pennies: const array<int,10> value = {10000, 5000, 2000, 500, 100, 50, 25, 10, 5, 1}; Create a parallel array with the actual denominations: const array<string,10> denomination = {"hundreds", "fifties", "twenties", "fives", "dollars", "half", "quarters", "dimes", "nickels", "cents"}; Start by multiplying the amount by 100 to determine the actual number of pennies. So $1.23 becomes 123 pennies. Store this value as an integer named pennies. Now work your way through the denominations in sequence: for (int index=0; index<value.size() && pennies; ++index) { int number=pennies/value[index]; if (number) cout<<number<<' '<<denomination[index]<<endl; pennies%=value[index]; }

8X5=40 and 5X1=5 so $0.45

In order from least amount of coins to most: 1 dime + 1 penny 2 nickels + 1 penny 1 nickel + 6 pennies 11 pennies

in US dollars: one dollar coin two dimes three nickels and three pennies

The maximum unemployment benefit you can receive in the state of Virginia is $358. In order to receive this amount you have to have worked and earned an acceptable amount of money in the qualifying quarters.

1 Mole of pennies. Hands down. In fact, it's painfully obvious. The next highest contestant is Ten-thousand million nickels which is 12044283000000 times smaller than a mole of pennies. 1 billion dimes = 100 million dollars = $100000000 10 billion (ten-thousand million) nickels = 500 million dollars = $500000000 1 million dollars = >.> = $1000000 1 mole (6.0221415e23) of pennies = Not even this much money in the world. But if you are curious, 1 mole of pennies is worth $6022141500000000000000.

You can combine them to form any amount from 1 cent to 99 cents. Examples: 37 cents = 1 quarter + 1 dime + 2 pennies 89 cents = 3 quarters + 1 dime + 4 pennies

60 nickels amount to $3.
