# Bills

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()
{

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)

}
else

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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