 Teller (Posted on 2024-02-11)
Mr. Zngg cashed a check for D dollars and C cents at the Bank of Dinkydonk. The teller accidentally reversed the figures and gave him C dollars and D cents. Suppose he got more than N times the original amount, but not more than N+1 times.

(1) For what check value can Mr. Zngg spend the least money and end up with exactly N times the original amount?

(2) For what check value must Mr. Zngg spend the most money in order to end up with exactly N times the original amount?

(3) For what check value can Mr. Zngg spend an amount of money closest to his original check and end up with exactly N times the right amount? [The amount of the check will determine the value of N, which must be a positive integer. D and C are both 2-digit numbers.]
