A customer wants to mail a package.
The postal clerk determines the cost of the package to be $18.95, but only
6¢ and 9¢ stamps are available. Can the available stamps be used for the exact amount of postage for the package?

Why or why not?

  2. divisors of 18.95 include 5;3.79 So you need to see if 3.79 can have divsors:IT turns out 379 is a prime number, and has no factors, so no possible way to make stamps from anything except a 3.79dollar stamp.
