Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So total 100 coins, with both kinds. Since question does not specify that there \(has\) to be 1 dinar coins between the twodinars, then Minimum number of 1 dinar coins = 1 what is the maximum number of twodinars?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1in this case there will be no '2' 2dinar coins with a gap of 5coins between them so in this case we can see that the number of 1dinar nd 2dinar coins is equal so there are 50 2dinar coins

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1but i am not sure that 50 is the MAXIMUM value of 2dinar coins...this answer is obtained frm the case which i made i donno there can be another case in which the answer can exceed 50.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0My bad, I didn't read the question properly. As a start, we can try with 6x2, then 6x1, then 6... 222222111111222222111111....2222221111112222 for a total of 52 2dinars. We'll investigate to see if there is a better arrangement.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@imqwerty I find 8 patterns of 222222111111 giving 48 2's out of 96 coins. The remaining 4 coins can be 2's, giving a total of 48+4=52 coins of 2 dinars. Would you like to show your calculations?
