Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Or perhaps I am not understanding correctly. You can have \(100\) 1 cent pieces, \(1000\) 1 cent pieces, \(10,000\) 1 cent pieces etc.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0First at most 1 50 cents, since 2 50 cents coins = $1 => $0.5 Then, at most 1 25 cents coin , since 2 25 cents coins = $0.5 => + 0.5 above = 1 (=> rejected) Now, we've got $0.75 We can at most 4 $0.1 coins. since 5 x $ 0.1 = $ 0.5 + 0.5 above = $1 (=> rejected) Now, we have $ 0.75 + $ 0.4 = 1.15 We CAN'T have $0.05 coin, since it 0.05 + 0.75 = 0.8 + 0.2 = 1 (=> rejected) we can have at most 4$0.02 coins, since 5x^0.02 = $0.1 and 0.1+ 0.4 = 0.5 (rejected) Now we have 1.23 No 0.01 ... 1.23?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0*No 0.01 since 0.01 + 0.02 + 0.02 = 0.05, that is similar to 0.05 case (=> rejected)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0typo: we can have at most 4$0.02 coins, since 5 x 0.02 = $0.1 and 0.1+ 0.4 = 0.5 (rejected)
