Thanks, that worked. I guessed I overcomplicated things and tried to define a variable for nickel or quarters. Even though the code did work, I don't think my output sentence is correct, what do you think?
cout "The conversion amount is: <--- should I reword this?
using namespace std;
int cents = 0;
int dollar = 0;
int denomination = 0;
int conversion = 0;
cout << "Please enter the amount of money in cents:" << endl;
cin >> cents;
cout << "Please enter the conversion in 5(nickels) or 25(quarters):" << endl;
cin >> denomination;
dollar = cents / 100;
conversion = cents / denomination;
cout << "The whole dollars amount in exchange is: " << dollar << endl << endl;
cout << "The conversion amount is: " << conversion << endl << endl;
