Challenge 7: The Coin Change Problem

Let's solve a coding challenge on the different ways to represent a given number of cents.

Problem Statement

Given an infinite number of quarters (25 cents), dimes (10 cents), nickels (5 cents), and pennies (1 cent), write code to calculate the number of ways to represent n cents.


The values of the coins available to represent the cents with (the denominations), the number of denominations, and the number of cents.


The number of ways that the given number of cents can be represented.

Sample Input

int amount = 10;
int denoms = {25, 10, 5, 1}
int denomsLength = 4;

Sample Output


Coding Exercise

Take a close look and design a step-by-step algorithm before jumping on to the implementation. This problem is designed for your practice, so try to solve it on your own first. If you get stuck, you can always refer to the hint and solution provided in the code tab. Good Luck!
