Distinct Values Validation (Posted on 2014-10-16) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Each of x, y and z is a nonnegative integer such that:

(i) x+y+z = 94, and:
(ii) H = 4x+10y+19z

How many distinct values of H is possible?

Some Thoughts Alternative formulation, while it had been in the queue | Comment 4 of 7 |
When this was originally proposed in the queue it had been presented as possible tower heights buildable from 94 bricks each with the three dimensions 4, 10 and 19.

I don't recall the wording exactly, but somehow had the impression that it was not necessary to use all 94 bricks.

That presents another variation of this puzzle: where x + y + z <= 94, rather than strict equality.
