Meet Hal. He's a successful commercial artist. He's also the guy at work who never seems to have change for a dollar for the vending machine. Hal wastes time every day going from desk to desk asking his co-workers for change.

Today, Hal happened to have
some coins in his pocket.

All but two of them were nickels,
all but two of them were quarters,
and all but two of them were pennies.

How much change did Hal have?

Here is the ANSWER.


One quarter, one nickel, and one penny, for a total of 31 cents.
