Quandaries
and Queries 

Hey my name is Beatriz, I was hoping you can help me understand and answer these two questions: 1) A bus driver collects identical sets of 5 coins from each passenger.
If the totoal colledted was $21.83, how many pennies did the driver get?? 2) How many terminal zero in the base 10 expression of 112! (factional)
N! means N(N1)(N2) .....(2) (1). I really hope you can help me out!! THank you so much! 

Hi Beatriz, The number of coins the driver received is a multiple of 5 and hence the total value of these coins is a multiple of 5. But $21.83 is not a multiple of 5 so I don't see how this is possible. For the second problem look at the answer we sent to Lauren when she asked a similar question. Penny
