Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well theres only one time of coin left? So you have to add up 1/3, 1/4 and 1/6 then take that away from 1. This will give you a fraction which will be the number of quarters left. Then from this just use the fractions and the knowledge you have 24 coins and voila. You have your answer
