Problem of the Week:
Making Change at the Boutique Shop
Student Page
In the Boutique Shop, you must determine
the change a customer receives from $5.00 for each purchase and decide
what coins you use to make the change. You have quarters, dimes,
nickels, and pennies.

List all the different ways you can make change
in this problem?

What is the least number of coins you need to
find this change?

Whats the most number of coins you can use to
find this change if you have a limit of 9 of any particular coin?

Why can you use only 8 pennies or 3 pennies?
(Why not 9, 7, 6, 5, 4, 2, 1, or 0?)
