```As this is obviously a class assignment of some sorts, I don't know how much
help you are going to get (or should get) in directly writing the code.
But, what I will say is that you should be able to look at the way the code
works now, how it keeps track of how many bills are needed for each
denomination (200, 100, etc), and apply the same idea to the total number
of bills required using another variable that is initialized before the
loop begins.
