    but it could be
    $15.80
    or
    $11.90
    or
    $10.81

    (if there can be more than 3 digits.)

    oops, you were right! I don't know what I was thinking :smile:

    Lincoln is on the penny, Jefferson is on the nickel, Roosevelt is on the dime, Washington is on the quarter, and Kennedy is on the half dollar.

    1 Lincolns = $.01
    2 Jeffersons = .10
    3 Roosevelts = .30
    4 Washingtons = 1.00
    5 Kennedys = 2.50
    ______________________
    Total = $3.91
