    or you could have 2 with $20 and one with $10 instead of 2 $10's and one $20 I think, but you still get 9.

    What if the customer wants 7 or 8 dollars in change? Keep trying...

    Re: New Math Question

    1=50
    2=20's
    2=10's
    1=5
    1=4 ones
    1=3 ones
    1=2 ones
    1=1 one

    10 envelopes.

    or even better:
    1=50
    1=25
    1=10
    1=5
    1=4 ones
    1=3 ones
    1=2 ones
    1=1 one

    8 envelopes. this is actually the right answer as far as i know. all change can be given because all smaller $ (smaller than 25) envelopes put together equal 25$.

    Re: New Math Question

    and the absolute right answer if you want to be really technical is:

    1=49
    1=25
    1=10
    1=5
    1=4ones
    1=3ones
    1=2ones
    1=1one

    still eight envelopes, but you can't give change for 100 dollars if they are buying something.

    how is this...am i close.?
