For some reason the answer will not appear on my browser, but I calculated $305....is that correct?

Ok...It finally worked. Fun, but not very challenging.

i don't get it...wouldn't you have to kno how many total bills at least that were in the bowl? just sayin there were certain denominations of the bills, i mean, there could be any number above 4 of each bill...or am i missing an important component to the puzzle?
