**Reiny**, Tuesday, November 19, 2013 at 10:23pmall multiples of 7 are $1

7, 14, 21 ------- $3.00

all multiples of 6 are .50

6,12,18,24,------- 4(.50) = $2.00

all multiples of 5 are .20

5,10,15,20 ---- 4(.20) = $.80

all multiples of 4 are .10

4,8,12,16,20,24

but the 12, 20 and 24 have been changed, so

only the 4,8, and 16 contain .10 ---- $.30

only multiples of 3 that have not been changed are

3 and 9 at .05 ------- $ .10

only the 2 and 11 of all the evens is still at .02

----------- $.04

leaving the remaining

1, 11, 13, 17, 19, and 23 to still have their .01

-------- .06

3 + 2 + .8 + .3 + .1 + .04 + .06

= 6.30

you are correct
