How come the answer is 11..?

I think the splitting must be this way..

Denomination Count Cost

1 1 1

2 2 4

5 1 5

10 2 20

20 2 40

50 0 0

100 1 100

200 2 400

500 1 500

1070

1070

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?
