User enters dollar amount as float
output should be the highest number of bills and coins (TWENTIES, TENS, FIVES, ONES, quarters, dimes, nickels, pennies). Any help is appreciated.

#include <stdio.h>

void main()
{
      unsigned TWENTIES, TENS, FIVES, ONES, quarters, dimes, nickels, pennies;
      float amount_user;

      printf("Enter Dollar amount between $0.00 and $100.00:");
      scanf("%d", &amount_user);
      amount_user=amount_user*100;
      printf("%d, amount_user\n");

      while (amount_user !=0)
      {
            if(amount_user>=2000)
            {
                  amount_user=amount_user/2000;
                  
            }
            else if(amount_user>=1000)
            {
                  amount_user-=1000;
                  TENS++;
            }
            else if(amount_user>=500)
            {
            amount_user-=500;
            FIVES++;
            }
            else if(amount_user>=100)
            {
            amount_user-=100;
            ONES++;
            }
            else if(amount_user>=25)
            {
            amount_user-=25;
            quarters++;
            }
            else if(amount_user>=10)
            {
            amount_user-=10;
            dimes++;
            }
            else if(amount_user>=05)
            {
            amount_user-=5;
            nickels++;
            }
            else if(amount_user>=1)
            {
            amount_user-=1;
            pennies++;
            }
            else
            {
                  break;
            }
      }
      printf("There are %d TWENTIES\n", TWENTIES);
      printf("There are %d TENS\n", TENS);
      printf("There are %d FIVES\n", FIVES);
      printf("There are %d ONES\n", ONES);
      printf("There are %d quarters\n", quarters);
      printf("There are %d dimes\n", dimes);
      printf("There are %d nickels\n", nickels);
      printf("There are %d pennies\n", pennies);
}

I guess you mean "the best efficient" way to distribute the amount among bills and coins.

--//--
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <stdio.h>

int main(void)
{
  unsigned int TWENTIES, TENS, FIVES, ONES, quarters, dimes, nickels, pennies;
  unsigned int amount_user;

  while(1)  {
    float tmp_amount;

    printf("Enter amount between $0.00 and $100.00: ");
    scanf("%f", &tmp_amount);
    if(tmp_amount >=0 && tmp_amount <= 100) {
      amount_user = (unsigned int)(tmp_amount * 100);
      break;
    }
  }

  TWENTIES = TENS = FIVES = ONES =
    quarters = dimes = nickels = pennies = 0;

  while(amount_user >= 2000) {
    amount_user -= 2000;
    TWENTIES++;
  }

  while(amount_user >= 1000) {
    amount_user -= 1000;
    TENS++;
  }

  while(amount_user >= 500) {
    amount_user -= 500;
    FIVES++;
  }

  while(amount_user >= 100) {
    amount_user -= 100;
    ONES++;
  }

  while(amount_user >= 25) {
    amount_user -= 25;
    quarters++;
  }

  while(amount_user >= 10) {
    amount_user -= 10;
    dimes++;
  }

  while(amount_user >= 5) {
    amount_user -= 5;
    nickels++;
  }

  while(amount_user >= 1) {
    amount_user -= 1;
    pennies++;
  }

  printf("There are %d TWENTIES\n", TWENTIES);
  printf("There are %d TENS\n", TENS);
  printf("There are %d FIVES\n", FIVES);
  printf("There are %d ONES\n", ONES);
  printf("There are %d quarters\n", quarters);
  printf("There are %d dimes\n", dimes);
  printf("There are %d nickels\n", nickels);
  printf("There are %d pennies\n", pennies);

  return EXIT_SUCCESS;
}

Your objective can be achieved in about 10 lines of C code, using a simple "for' loop

This was mostly correct but some of the answers were wrong and that was fixed. One too little peenies. Anyway, I played around with the last While(---) and got it fixed. Thanks for your help.
