Best Answer

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.
