  • Explanation: When I first read the problem I was confused. Then I realized I would need to keep an organized list so I didn’t repeat or miss any answers. I started with the most amount of dimes possible. Then I went down one dime and filled in all possible combinations of nickels and pennies. The I went down another and in all nickel and penny combinations. I continued until I had 0 dimes and all those combinations. This was a fun and challenging problem.
