    It could be any order for this one.@Luis Rivera if you divide by 10 that would be 1 5 dollar bill but the question isn't asking to divide by ten. :P

    I think that it would be 1 five dollar bill but I'm not really positive on that because it could be in any order :P

    nope thats not right... Check: 5(5) + 10(10) = 50 thats not right :P 25+100 doesnt equal 50 so this problem is confusing as butternots..O.o

    Dude @Luis Rivera it could be MANY different combinations but due to that equation shown by @benice it makes things easier for her. More equations will confuse her more, the answer is 6. and she's done come on now :P
