A lady handed a dollar bill to a post clerk and said:

"Give me some two cent stamps, ten times that amount of one cent stamps and the rest in five stamps."

How can the employee do to meet this unique demand?

Solution

You must deliver 5 stamps of 2 cents, 50 of 1 cent and 8 of 5 cents that together add exactly 1 dollar.
