how did you arrive in this answer? It's great!!! but I can't figure out how you did it
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Did you get my second question?
Expert:  General Jay replied 4 years ago.

I started with 100 pennies equalling a dollar. I worked backwards from 100 in increments of 5 pennies because nickels, dimes and quarters are all divisible by 5. For example, you cannot have 99 pennies and use a nickel, dime or a quarter to equal one dollar.

 

If you have 95 pennies, then only a nickel can be used to equal a dollar and so on.....it was tedious, but I wrote them down in columns.
