Hi;

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
Some cause happiness wherever they go; others, whenever they go.

Hi bobbym

So, do you think I should write out all the values for some lesser number of coins necessary? E.g. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, ...

Nope, that does not help. We choose a smaller one to test our assertions because the smaller problems have a unique property that the larger ones do not.

Hi bobbym

What properties? I noticed that for one there's not much testing. There's only one case. Is that what you meant?

### Re: What do you think?

what properties

The art of combinatorics can defined as counting without actually counting. Small problems have one property that larger ones do not, that is we can violate the above principle easily.
