Got change for a dollar?

Directions: What is the largest amount in coins you can have and not be able to make change for a dollar without shorting yourself or cheating the other person?



Would you believe it is more than $1.00?



$1.19. 3 Quarters, 4 Dimes, 4 Pennies.
Alternatively, you could have 1 50cent piece, 1 Quarter, 4 Dimes and 4 Pennies. It works out the same.
