  1. I see that one side is not organized.
    And the another side organized in nice rows.
    I wonder how much money is there so there is ???
    so there is 251 because look
    so 10+10+10+10+10+10+10+10=80
    so 25+25+25+25+25+25=150
    so 5+5+5+5=20
    and 1 doller.
    than I plues all of them so 80+20+150+1=251.

  2. I see that one side organized .
    And the another side is not organized.
    do you know that there is 251 coins because 10+10+10+10+10+10+1010=80
    and 1 dollar so if you plus all of them it will equal 251. try it and when I tried it on paper it equaled 251 than I want to double check that I was right. than I used calculator and I was right.

  3. We have 3dollars 25 cent in each side.
    The right side is easier to arrange .
    We can arrange the money in easiest way:
    3 (25cent) in a line and 3 ( 25 cent) in the second line.
    4(10cent) in a line and 4(10cent) in other line.
    Then 4(5cent) in a line and a loonie.
