What is greater $5.00 or the total value of all combinations of three coins you can make using only pennies, nickels,dimes,and quarters?

Three quarters = 75 cents.

Neat question:

I tried going about it sort of systematically,
hope I didn't miss any
work each one up and see if you get more than $5.00
PS, using the Q (quarters) combinations I was at $3.62
