Brain teaser - How Many coins

Question.
A bag holds 50 coins that add up to $1.00. How many coins of each denomination (value) are in the bag?
Remember the available coins are pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters. You cannot use a loonie as this would put you over your limit with 1 coin.

  • umm... ok so one way you could do this is you would use 40 pennies and 2 dimes and 8 nickels. ANd this is from Maxine Achtemichuk from room 7-72.
