Hmmm... The assumption being that $.50 is the largest coin in circulation then isn't the amount infinitesimal plus $.94 since all the half dollars in the world won't reproduce a larger coin? Think

There are dollar coins in circulation. If you used two half dollar coins then they could be replaced by a dollar coin but the problems state that you can only use pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters, and half dollars.

There is a specific amount that is in whole coins. The coins are quantized, they can not be broken into smaller parts.

To clarify, if you used 4 pennies, 1 nickel, 1 dime, 1 quarter, 1 half dollar, then the sum of the values of the coins would be $.96. There is a way to make a larger sum, that is what you need to find to answer this riddle.

It has been a week so I will give the answer:

If you take 4 pennies, 4 dimes, one quarter, and one half dollar that would equal $1.19.

New riddle:

A B C
D E F
G H I

Replace each letter with the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9 so that the sum of each column, each row, and both diagonals is equal to 15. Each number can only be used once and all of the numbers must be used.

Tell me if you know.
Don’t you think that’s a cute little riddle?
Round on the ends and high in the middle.
You can find it on a map if you look high and low.
The O’s are round and it’s HI in the middle,
O-H-I-O, that’s the riddle,
O-HI-O!!!!

The letter “r”.

A few have twelve, many have four, most have six.

Edit-I did give somebody some more clues so I will share those clues; Some do have five, a few have one, there have been instances with one having two and one having three. They could have seven, eight, nine, ten and eleven but I have never seen any like those. And the numbers do not refer to engine cylinders.

It has been more than a week so I will give the answer; A Guitar 🎸. There are 12 string guitars, bass guitars have 4 strings, most guitars have 6 strings. There are 5 string basses (they have a low B string added to them). I once saw The Presidents of the United States playing on the Jenny McCarthy Show and the guitar only had 3 strings and the bass only had 2 strings. A wash tub bass guitar has only 1 string. Guitars could have 7, 8, 9 , 10 or 11 strings but I have never seen any like that.

Brain.

She had four but one was for show while Lucy had four that were good.
Mary has three and Elizabeth had two but poor Victoria only has one.

Ok, I thought this may have been a little specific, so...


She (Titanic) had four but one was for show while Lucy (Lusitania) had four that were good.
(RMS Queen)Mary has three and (RMS Queen)Elizabeth had two but poor (MS Queen)Victoria only has one.

Get it now?

Smokestacks! That was so clever! I was quessing the actual Queens and not ships.

George had two, Bill had two, George’s father had one, Ronald had two, Jimmy had one, Gerald had a half and Richard had one and a half. Who are they?

They are probably former American presidents, and at a guess, it is the various siblings each had, or half siblings, in some cases.

Is that it? help

It is Former presidents of the United States and the number refers to the number of terms each president served. I could have added Barack had two, Lyndon had one and a quarter, John had three quarters and Frank had three and a quarter but I thought that would be too obvious.

Go ahead and post a riddle Gypsy.

A yes, the terms of office. Could have been siblings, with the half business, and indeed the others would have given it away.

You are a candle.

I see nothing myself but I can help a specific person see. If the wrong person uses me, she or he won’t see as well. I usually come in pairs but my use as a single, though possible, isn’t fashionable anymore.

My strength can be measured in molarity or molality. I have to have two parts and nobody is sure why I work with some pairs and not with others. (Is this a good guess to your enigma, Gypsie?)

Where on earth...

My first is in Mother but never in Dad
My second in Cousin who isn't a Lad.
My third is in Cooking though not in a cook
And my fourth is in written though not in a book
My fifth is in Michael but not if he's Mike
and my last is in Heaven or Hell, if you like.
So where is this place that I love to be?
