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.

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
