Please help with this problem...
I'm still learning java and i got stuck with a problem posted through our school campus...
this is the one....and it's supposed to be the sequential structure..

Write a program that classifies a given amount of money in dollars. The program outputs a report listing the monetary equivalent in dollars, quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies.
for an output example:

Enter an amount in dollars: $11.56
Your amount $11.56 consists of :
11 dollar(s)
2 quarter(s)
0 dime(s)
1 nickel(s)
1 penny(ies)

and so with the reverse process..
please help...

(hint: this problem really only requires two arithmetical operators)
(second hint: it's a LOT easier if you view $11.56 as 1156 cents, and use integer arithmetic)
