Q:
# How many ways can you make change for a dollar?

**There are 293 ways to make change for a dollar using a combination of pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters, half dollars and dollar coins, according to the Mathematical Association of America.** It has been disputed that a dollar coin is change for a dollar bill since the definition of change dictates the coin value equal that of a larger coin or bill. Using that definition, the dollar coin would not qualify and the total count would decrease to 292 ways.

The total of 293 ways to make change for a dollar would be consistent if using all forms of coin currently in circulation, which includes the silver dollar.
