well it depends on how you want it. If you want it as, like having 4 quarters and counting one way for four quarters then counting another as having the same 4 quarters but in different order (if you understood any of that) there is 293 possibilities. but if you want it the other way, We can use either 0, 1, 2, 3, or 4 quarters.

If we use 0 quarters, we can use from 0 up to 10 dimes, and the rest, if any, in nickels.

That accounts for 11 ways. If we use 1 quarter, we can use from 0 up to 7 dimes, and the rest in nickels. That accounts for 8 ways. If we use 2 quarters, we can use from 0 up to 5 dimes, and the rest, if any, in nickels. That accounts for 6 ways. If we use 3 quarters, we can use from 0 up to 2 dimes, and the rest in nickels. That accounts for 3 ways. If we use 4 quarters, that's the whole dollar, so that accounts for 1 way. So the total number of ways = 11+8+6+3+1 = 29 You weren't asked to list them, but here is the list of all 29 ways:

1. 0 quarters, 0 dimes, and 20 nickels.
