    I'll get you started.

    To get the $0.70, she'll need to use one $2.50 stamp and one $1.20 stamp in each situation.

    $25.70 - $3.70 = $22.00

    a) five $4.00 stamps + two $1.00 stamps + one $2.50 stamps + one $1.20 stamps

    b) six $1.00 stamps + one $2.50 stamps + one $1.20 stamps + ???

    We'll be glad to check your answers.

    c)what is the largest # that she can use from her collection to post the parcel
    d)list the stamps she can use

    Must use all the $1.00 stamps.
    Therefore 25.70 - 6.00 = 19.70
    The maximum number of $4.00 stamps now useable is 4.
    Therefore, 19.70 - 16 = $3.70
    Using 1 $1.20 and 1 $2.50 makes $3.70.

    Therefore:
    6 + 1.20 + 2.50 + 16 = $25.70
