following could NOT be the total amount of money in the jar?

1 penny = 1 cent
1 dime = 10 cents
1 nickel = 5 cents

thus x* penny + y* 10(penny) + z* 5 penny = x + 10y + 5z = total cents

1. y=4,z=2,x=1
2. y=4,z=2,x=3
3. y=4,z= 2,x=5 not possible Hence C.
4. y=5,z=1,x=2
5. y=5,z=1,x=4

Thus C.

51 = 4D + 2N + 1P
53 = 4D + 2N + 3P
55 = 4D + 2N + 5P or 5D + 1N (Not Possible)
57 = 5D + 1N + 2P
59 = 4P + 1N + 5D
