#### 1. Steve had to pay a library fee. The amount he paid is shown below. How much did he pay?

1. C: There are 2 dollar bills, which represent 2 dollars. There are also 2 quarters, 2 nickels, 1 dime, and 4 pennies. Two quarters are worth $0.50 since each is worth $0.25 (2 x0.25=0.50) , 2 nickels are worth $0.10 since each is worth $0.05 (2 x0.05=0.10) , 1 dime is worth $0.10, and 4 pennies are worth $0.04 since each is worth $0.01. The sum of the coins can be found by writing: $0.50+$0.10+$0.10+$0.04, which equals $0.74. The sum of the two dollar bills and the coins can be written as: $2.00+$0.74. Thus, he paid $2.74.
