I have a large sack full of U.S. coins (pennies, dimes, nickels, and quarters). I keep it full with hundreds of dollars worth of coins. I am a generous man, and as such, I allow any one that asks to take and keep a handful of coins from the bag.
Write an algorithm to count up the total dollar amount of coins a person has removed. The algorithm should work for any number of coins and should report the dollar amount of the coins selected.
