The Trivia

A person has $100 ($ is used for representation purpose) in the form of 50 paper currency notes. In the 50 notes the person has, there are no $2 notes at all. We want to know what combination of notes the user has in his pocket that will bring up a total of $100.

Trivia Notes / Tips: Only $1, $5, $10, $20, $50 and $100 are accepted as valid currencies. You cannot use $2 notes to create the combination.

Go ahead tell us your combinations, we are looking forward to how intelligent brains work.

  1. Yep. Start with 50x$1, but that’s used the 50 notes already. Ok, go down by 10 $1 notes & start filling up with $5 notes. Get to 8 of those & you have 40x$1 & 8x$5 = $60. Another 2 notes for the remaining $40? Easy.
