A denomination wouldn't be an amount of money, it would be a specific bill, like \$1, \$2, \$5, \$10, \$20, \$50, \$100, \$1000.

I think I'm confused...the way I read the question is this: There are \$1070 total, how can you divide them into bags so that you can make any dollar amount from \$1 to \$1070 without having to open the bags. The solution naveed gave doesn't let you make any dollar amount from \$71 to \$99, for example. What am I misreading into the question?
