How would you turn a value for example 100 using modulus to determine the dollar amount, penny amount, quarter amount, etc?

Can someone explain this to me?

EX:

Scenario: Kids these days! You are the new shift manager at the
* local Tast-E-Freeze ice cream shop. Every day the high schoolers
* working the counter are up in arms about the fact that you expect
* them to make change WITHOUT A CALCULATOR! Needless to say, the
* cash balance is always off at the end of the day. You are fed up
* and decide to write a program to help the kids make change. What
* are they teaching in school these days anyway??!!
*
* INPUT: Ask the teenie-bopper working the desk to enter the amount due
* and the amount paid by the customer
* OUTPUT: The number of dollars, quarters, dimes, nickels and pennies (s)he will
* need to use to give the customer the correct change
* ******************************************************** */
My first answer is going to be fire the person who can't figure out how much change to give someone after being told the amount to give them.

I.E. cost=12.37, payment=15.00, change=2.63
if they can't figure out that they need to hand the customer 2 dollar bills two quarters a dime and three pennies, fire them! in the mean time it is an interesting problem I am working on right now for you.
modulas is not the answer as an operator becuase you will always be using doubles in your calculations I.E. 12.37 15.00

Thank you I appreciate it!!:)
`modulas is not the answer `
There is an fmod() in <cmath>
