Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1She must have 3 pennies since there is no other way to represent $.01. This leaves 6 coins to make $.90. If we use two quarters as well, we have accounted for $.53, which leaves us with $.40 to account for. For this we can use four times. Her coins are 3 pennies, 4 dimes, and 2 quarters. 3 + 4 + 2 = 9 coins .03 + .40 + .50 = .93

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1A half dollar is another kind of coin. Are you sure the problem is just not ruling out that sort of coin as an option?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1We don't need to use any nickels. We would have to use at least ten coins for that (3 pennies, 2 nickels, 3 dimes, 2 quarters, because 2 nickels replaces one dime).
