After Video
I need to buy an apple that costs 45¢. What is the first type of coin I should use?ANSWERQuarters.
Start with the dollar first, 1 dollar bill. Next, look at the greatest-valued coin, a quarter. Now you have $1.25, so you also need 1 nickel.
First, choose 2 dollar bills. Then, 1 quarter, 1 dime, 1 nickel, and 3 pennies.
Dimes are the next biggest coin, so Joanna should start there: 7 dimes and 1 nickel.
She can use 4 dollar bills, 19 nickels, and 4 pennies.
