### Make the Amount

A simple game to make \$1.00: Make the Amount

Can choose different currencies.

(I am working on a variation where you are given random coins like \$0.19, \$0.21, \$0.43 etc as well)

Does it work for you? Ideas/suggestions?

Hi;

It is working fine. Is that a Susan B. Anthony dollar for the American money.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
A number by itself is useful, but it is far more useful to know how accurate or certain that number is.

Hi;

Sacagawea? I have never seen one. Thanks for the info.

### Re: Make the Amount

hi MathsIsFun,

Yes, it works for me in several currencies.  Correctly remembers successful attempts so they don't get double counted.  I decided I wouldn't try to get all 4563 cases for UK.    Once the 'found space' was full, no new attempts were shown (maybe scrolling ?).

Switched to other currencies. Like NZ as it only had 11 to find and I got them all.  Disappointed not to get a fanfare.

I think the random amount will be more useful as you could practise making amounts in a currency you want to learn about.

Also great for kids learning about money.
