To make 89 cents with 6 coins, you have to first realize that the "9" part of the cents is comprised of 5 cents and 4 pennies. Therefore, you have to have 4 pennies and 85 cents using 2 coins; impossible, since you would need 3 coins(if you had half-dollars) to make that amount: a half-dollar, quarter, and a dime. Basically, it's impossible with only coins worth 0.01, 0.05, 0.10, 0.25, and 0.50 of the currency(US$, I assume?)

A set of half dollar quarter and dime is worth 50+25+10 = 85 cents. So, with an equal number of these coins the sum can only be a multiple of 85 cents. 15 dollars is not a multiple so cannot be so changed.

3 coins- 1 half dollar, 1 quarter, and 1 dime. 4 coins- 3 quarters and 1 dime.

Each Nickel is worth 5¢ so ... 17 nickels X 5¢ equal 85¢ ... 85 cents.
