$4.98 Step-by-step explanation: 50*16%=8 (pennies), 50*40%=20 (dimes) 8+5=13 (nickels), 50-(8+20+13)=9 (quarters) So the money in total is 8*0.01+20*0.1+13*0.05+9*0.25=$4.98

2. ANSWER: $4.98 Steps for pennies: 1.) 50 * .16 = 8 8 pennies out of 50 coins 2.) 1 cent * 8 = 8 cents Steps for dimes: 1.) 50 * .40 = 20 20 dimes out of 50 coins 2.) 10 cents * 20 = 200 cents =$2

Steps for nickels:

1.) 8 + 5 = 13

13 nickels out of 50 coins

2.) 5 cents * 13 = 65 cents

Steps for quarters:

1. 8 + 20 + 13 = 41

2. 50 – 41 = 9

3. 9 * .25 = $2.25 FINAL STEP: 8 cents +$2 + 65 cents + $2.25 =$4.98
