Pay Phone Problem 1998-02-26
From Shameq:
Hi, I've been given a problem that I'm having some trouble with. I'd really appreciate any help. Here's the question (it's called the Pay Phone Problem)

A pay phone will take only 10p, 20p, 50p, and 1 coins"(It's British).

A woman has plenty of 10p and 20p coins. She has no other coins. She can put the coins into the pay phone in any order.

INVESTIGATE the number of different ways, she could put the 10p and 20p coins into the pay phone.
