Difficult Danny has acquired his nickname (and some other, less polite nicknames) due to the fact that, whenever he buys anything, he insists upon paying the exact amount, with precisely 100 pieces of currency. Danny walks into McArnold's and orders an iced coffee for $1.99. He pours 100 coins onto the counter, using some number (possibly zero) of each of the following: pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters. There are equal, nonzero quantities of dimes and quarters. What is the breakdown of coins that Difficult Danny used to pay for his iced coffee?
(See hint for currency values.)
