Default C program Currency Converter

I need help with a homework problem. I have no C programming experience.

Here are the instructions:

Write a C program to calculate the change converter. Take input from the user for amount due and currency note. You are required to give back the balance amount in the least denomination (i.e. least amount of currency to be returned). The program must be able to calculate in dollars, quarter, dime, nickel and pennies.
Amount Due = $25.52
Amount Given = $30.00
Balance Amount = $ 4.48
Given back in denomination as
$1 bill - 4 = 4.00
Quarters - 1 = 0.25
Dimes - 2 = 0.20
Pennies - 3 = 0.03

Use mod function (%)

Can anyone please help!

Thanks in advance

Send a message via ICQ to natmaster Send a message via AIM to natmaster Send a message via MSN to natmaster

here is a simple way to do that, but i will only write a little code since it is homework:
double amount;
int dollars=0,quarters=0,dimes=0,pennies=0;
//if there is at least 1 dollar
if(amount/1 >= 1) {
//turning the equation into an int chops off any excess
//rest of the money to be processed by lower functions

now continue that if statement for each of the variables of money descending in value. (next do quarters and use amount/.25 as the equation)
