Hello, I was wondering if anyone could tell me how I can get cents. I can get dollars fine but not the right amount of cents.For example, if i input 100 20 10 4 1 1 (pennies,nickels,dimes,quarters,loonies,toonies) i should get 7 dollars and 0 cents. but i get

Please enter the number of pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters, loonies, toonies,
each separated by a single space.
100 20 10 4 1 1
7 dollar(s) and 700 cents
Press any key to continue . . .

my code is

// Convert strings to integer values.

int pen1 = Integer.parseInt(pen);
int nick1 = Integer.parseInt(nick);
int dime1 = Integer.parseInt(dime);
int quart1= Integer.parseInt(quart);
int loon1 = Integer.parseInt(loon);
int toon1 = Integer.parseInt(toon);

// Calculates the total cent value.

int coins= (pen1*1) + (nick1*5) + (dime1*10) + (quart1*25)
+ (loon1*100) + (toon1*200);

// Calculate the total dollar value.

int dollars=(coins/100);

System.out.println(dollars +" "+ "dollar(s) " + "and " + coins + " " + "cents"); // Prints out total money value.

}
}

Hello, No need to respond to this post. I have figured it out. I used the %modulus to calculate cents.
cheers, and good health to all.

Hi Mike,

May be you have to add one more line

coins = coins%100;

before printing the value.
If you need to store the value of coins then
int Coins1;
Coins1= coins%100;
