In Topic: get Bent

17 April 2015 - 05:03 AM

Spoiler for Assuming that I understood the definition of "bent" correctly

 

I'm thinking of how to fill up the entire angle A in k-man's drawing.

The reflex interior angle would have to approach 180 degrees to  do that.

That demands an infinite number of bents, whose angles approach 180 degrees as a limit.

 

The requirement of an infinite number of bents contradicts the terms of the OP.

Q. E. D.

Can you clarify - are you looking for highest number of coins, or the highest total value of coins? Are you including coins out of circulation?

Considering that there is a $1 coin, the maximum is limited only by the availability of the $1 coins. Without using $1 coins, I don't see how you can have more than 99. :wacko:


There is also a $10 gold piece. Although it's no longer minted, it's legal tender.
