Well, if you're serious about teaching her logic skills ;) (I've ignored two dollar bills for simplicity. It should be trivial to add it)

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use AI::Prolog; my @bills = qw(Fifties Twenties Tens Fives Ones); my $bills = join ',', @bills; # don't use $prolog->list because these +are vars my $program = <<"END_PROLOG"; change([ $bills ]) :- member(Fifties,[0,1,2]), member(Twenties,[0,1,2,3,4,5]), member(Tens,[0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10]), member(Fives,[0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20 +]), Total is 50*Fifties + 20*Twenties +10*Tens + 5*Fives, Total <= 100, Ones is 100 - Total. member(X, [X|_]). member(X, [_|Tail]) :- member(X, Tail). END_PROLOG my $prolog = AI::Prolog->new($program); $prolog->query("change([ $bills ])."); while (my $result = $prolog->results) { for my $i ( 0 .. $#bills ) { print "$result->[1][$i] $bills[$i]"; print ", " unless $i == $#bills; } print "\n"; } __END__ # Beginning of output: 0 Fifties, 0 Twenties, 0 Tens, 0 Fives, 100 Ones 0 Fifties, 0 Twenties, 0 Tens, 1 Fives, 95 Ones 0 Fifties, 0 Twenties, 0 Tens, 2 Fives, 90 Ones 0 Fifties, 0 Twenties, 0 Tens, 3 Fives, 85 Ones 0 Fifties, 0 Twenties, 0 Tens, 4 Fives, 80 Ones 0 Fifties, 0 Twenties, 0 Tens, 5 Fives, 75 Ones 0 Fifties, 0 Twenties, 0 Tens, 6 Fives, 70 Ones 0 Fifties, 0 Twenties, 0 Tens, 7 Fives, 65 Ones 0 Fifties, 0 Twenties, 0 Tens, 8 Fives, 60 Ones ...
