I have to buy 100 animals, I have to use 100 dollars, I have to get at least 1 of each.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Cow(X) = 10 bucks

Pig(Y) = 1 buck

Chicken(Z) = .5 bucks, 50 cents, 2 quarters

This looked really easy at first but I kept getting stuck, how do I get through this?

Restraints I came up with.

x+y+z=100

10x+1y+.5z=100

X is greater than or equal to 1 and is less than or equal to 10

Y is greater than or equal to 1

Z is greater than or equal to 1
