Cheap Heaps – Umm, no they are costly!

March 2, 2009 at 1:56 pm Leave a comment

I have $309 with me. I need to divide this in heaps so that if you ask for any amount between $1 and $309, I should be able to give you the proper amount by handing over a certain number of these heaps to you without any further need to subdivide a heap. What is the minimum number of heaps I will require?
