Hi again all,

I haven’t read any references about Frobenius numbers.

But here is my thought. Suppose you have two coins, and the value of one is an integer multiple of the other. Then the possible values of money is just the multiples of the smaller coin value.

For example, if there were a kingdom with two pence and eight pence coins, and no others, then only even amounts of pence could be given as change. And more, every even value of pence could be produced given an infinite supply of these two coins.

I believe I am right

Matt
