    Default Please help me out

    public class MoneyTask {
    public static int countWaysToProduceGivenAmountOfMoney(int cents) {
            /*
              Please implement this method to
              return the number of different combinations of US coins
              (penny: 1c, nickel: 5c, dime: 10c, quarter: 25c, half-dollar: 50c)
              which may be used to produce a given amount of money.
     
              For example, 11 cents can be produced with
              one 10-cent coin and one 1-cent coin,
              two 5-cent coins and one 1-cent coin,
              one 5-cent coin and six 1-cent coins,
              or eleven 1-cent coins.
              So there are four unique ways to produce 11 cents.
              Assume that the cents parameter is always positive.
     
             */
    }
     
    }


    thanks in advance.

    That's absolutely NOT how this works. Read the link in my signature on asking questions the smart way before you post again. Homework dumps will get you banned.

    Hint: How would you do this by hand, or with a piece of paper and a pencil? Pretend you have a friend who has no idea how to make change. Write out instructions that he can follow, and you'll have an algorithm that should be pretty easy to translate to code.
