What are the two coins that add up to 30 cents, with one not being a nickel?

• Thrice
In summary, the conversation revolves around the TV show Scrubs and the different opinions and jokes about it. One person loves the show while another is not a big fan. They discuss the best seasons and a joke about a nickel and a dime. The conversation ends with someone explaining the joke and another person making a sarcastic comment.

And one of them is not a nickel. I love Scrubs.

'The other one is'

I'm not that big of a fan to be honest.

Nice show
Love too

I love Scrubs.

Scrubs is excellent, although I think the earlier series were better, there is only so much material for Dr Cox's rants I suppose

which seasons are you talking about , personally i find 2 and 3 are the best..

I'm in the middle of downloading season 3 & I love it. All of it. I just can't get enough.

Is a dime 25 cents??
Is that where the joke lies?

I hate when i have to explain a joke..

Yes and to reinforce the lack of humour for those who lack it, one's a nickel and ones a quarter, thus 30 cents; the other thing, it's not meant to be a question about the solution, the solution is obvious.

By the way I think Arildno was being sarcastic.hehe.

1. How is it possible for 2 coins to add up to 30 cents?

It is possible for 2 coins to add up to 30 cents because the coins in question are a quarter (25 cents) and a nickel (5 cents).

2. Can any other combination of coins add up to 30 cents?

No, only a quarter and a nickel can add up to exactly 30 cents. Other combinations, such as 3 dimes and a nickel, add up to 35 cents.

3. How do you know that 2 coins add up to 30 cents and not a different amount?

Based on the question, it is assumed that the coins in question are a quarter and a nickel. These are the only two coins that add up to exactly 30 cents.

4. Is there a mathematical formula for solving this problem?

Yes, the mathematical formula would be: x + y = 30, where x is the value of the first coin and y is the value of the second coin. In this case, x = 25 and y = 5.

5. How does this relate to scientific principles or concepts?

This question does not necessarily relate to scientific principles or concepts, but it does demonstrate basic mathematical skills and problem-solving abilities, which are important skills for any scientist to have.
