Total coins

EXAMPLE

1 1 0 4 6


39 ¢

Hint:

Start with 1 quarter to make the total 25 ¢.

You can't add more quarters as the total will become 50 ¢
(25  ¢ + 25 ¢), which is more than the cost of the pumpkin (39 ¢).

You have 1 quarter, so write the answer above and move to the smaller coin to make the total 39 ¢.

Hint:

Add a dime to make the total 35 ¢ (25 ¢ + 10 ¢).

You can't add more dimes  as the total will become 45 ¢
(35  ¢+ 10 ¢), which is more than the cost of pumpkin (39 ¢).

You have 1 dime, so write the answer above and move to the smaller coin to make the total 39 ¢.

Hint:

You can't add a nickel as the total will become 40 ¢ (35  ¢+ 5 ¢), which is more than the cost of pumpkin (39 ¢).

You have 0 nickels, so write the answer above and move to the smaller coin to make the total 39 ¢.

Hint:

This is the smallest coin, so add as may pennies as required to make the final total.

For this question add 4 pennies to make the total 39 ¢
(35 ¢ + 4 ¢)

Hint:

Count all the coins and write you answer above.

3 + 2 + 4 = 9
