    word problem with coins

    I have this tricky math problem

    If I have two coins that have a value of 6 cents and one coin is not a penny, what are the two coins?

    Did this come from the book or your teacher? If it came from your teacher, think about it like a brain teaser, perhaps.

    The problem said one coin isn't a penny. It never said the other coin isn't a penny. Good luck.
