Best Answer

Depends on your definition of "Sets of Coins"

if this means combinations of units of currency the answer is Two (2):

1) 6 quarters = 1.50

2) 5 quarters, 2 dimes, and 1 nickel = 1.50

if each individual coin is treated as a unique item then option 2 becomes 36 different options:

6 different quarters could be excluded

3 different dimes could be excluded

2 different nickels could be excluded

for 6x3x2 = 36 combinations +1 (the 6 quarter method)

=37 sets of coins.

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.
