1. ## trying to make change from the price of the item and the amount given. please help!!!

/*This lab will calculate and display change*/\

#include <stdio.h>

main ()
{
float change,
price,
amt_paid;

int twenties = 0,
tens = 0,
fives = 0,
ones = 0,
quarters = 0,
dimes = 0,
nickels = 0,
pennies = 0;

scanf("%f", &price);

scanf("%f", &price);

/* Calculations for change*/

change = amt_paid - price;
int(change*=100);

printf("\nCHANGE = \$ ");
scanf("%f", &change);

while (change>0)
{

if (change > 20)
{++twenties;
break ();}

else if (change > 10)
{++tens;
break ();}

else if (change > 5)
{++fives;
break ();}

else if (change > 1)
{++ones;
break ();}

else if (change > .25)
{++quarters;
break ();}

else if (change > .10)
{++dimes;
break ();}

else if (change > .05)
{++nickels;
break ();}

else if (change > .01)
{++pennies;}

}

2. Peeps wonder why I sometimes come down on newbies, its not rying to be unkind... I am simply trying to say, "Think for yourself".

Think about it... how much is a quarter worth... 25 cents!
A dime... 10 cents!
ect. ect.

Code:
`int cents = 0;`
I allways try to think for at leaste 5 minutes before posting... the apparent answer (such as 5 ints for each type of change) is uduslly not the correct one, try to train yourself to think about more efficient possibuilities and you will allways acheive.

3. ## think

think about it... its not hard, think, if you REALLY using your whole brain, cannot figure it out, then read the code, but if u CAN than dont read the code I give you.

...

Okay if u are readinf this u didnt get it:

use simple division.
You scan the privce into int cents.

then simply devide by the value of the coin...

cents / 25; // quarters

sometimes I feal as if the school system has truely failed us.

no offence to you.
