If you have 3 quarters, 5 dimes, and 6 nickles, how many distinct ways can you give someone $0.50 (Assuming that all denominations of coins are distinguishable from on another)?

I found 4 ways. Is that correct?

I think there are more.

2 quarters

5 dimes

6 nickles and 2 dimes

1 quarter, 2 dimes, 1 nickel

1 quarter, 1 dime, 2 nickels

I'll bet you can find more.
