# How Do You Make Change for a Dollar Using 50 Coins?

There is little practical purpose for exchanging 50 coins for a dollar. However, it is an entertaining math problem. Ask Dr. Math identifies two possible outcomes, one involving 40 pennies and the other involving 45 cents. The easiest method involves 45 cents.

## Count 45 pennies

Count out and place away 45 cents. This action yields five coins for the remaining 55 cents.

Add a quarter to the pennies to achieve the sum of \$0.70. A quarter is required because five dimes only amount to \$0.50.

Dimes and nickels make up the remaining four \$0.30 coins. Given that three nickels equal \$0.30, only two nickels are conceivable. Thus, two dimes and two nickels make up the remaining 50 cents for a dollar.
