First i thought, okay i will start off with ten and that will determine how many dimes i need to have. So i started with ten as a guess and check.But when i sloved with ten i relized this is not enough. So i worked my way up using only even numbers. Because i tried to solve eleven but it doesn't work because you can't divide odd numbers by two. So i just skipped past 11,13,& 15.
