**drwls**, Sunday, January 9, 2011 at 11:34amLet's use the "brute force" method.

Start at the top with the most valuable combination and start adding.

25 + 25 + 25 = 75

25 + 25 + 10 = 65

25 + 25 + 5 = 55

25 + 25 + 1 = 51

25 + 10 + 10 = 45

25 + 10 + 5 = 40

25 + 10 + 1 = 36

10 + 10 + 10 = 30

10 + 10 + 5 = 25

10 + 10 + 1 = 21

10 + 5 + 5 = 20

10 + 5 + 1 = 16

5 + 5 + 5 = 15

5 + 5 + 1 = 11

The total just reached 505 cents.

There are a few more combinations left.

5 + 1 + 1 = 7

1 + 1 = 1 = 3

Take the coins.
