Twenty cents can be represented with two to four coins. This leaves four to two coins for the four dollars. Obviously, the dollar amount will have to be in loonies and toonies only. (Smaller denominations would use too many coins.)
The twenty-cent combinations are: - two dimes (2 coins)
- one dime and two nickels (3 coins)
- four nickels (4 coins)
The four-dollar combinations are: - two toonies (2 coins)
- one toonie and two loonies (3 coins)
- four loonies (4 coins)
There are nine ways to combine these, but the limit is six coins. Two toonies can be combined with any of the twenty-cent combinations. There are six ways to buy my yummy, chocolate-coated, ice cream thing on a stick. |
