    Currency Question

    Suppose you want to break a US$100 bill into:
    2 20-dollar bills, 5 10-dollar bills, 1 5-dollar bill, and 5 1-dollar bills, can you say like "I want two twenties, five tens, one five, and five ones(singles)."?
    And, in this case, 'five ones/five singles', which would be better?

    Also,
    I want all in change./I want all in changes.
    Can I have the change in coins./Can I have change in coins.
    Which of these expressions are grammatically correct?

    Thank you

    Re: Currency Question

    We classify numerals as a subclass of nouns because in certain circumstances they can take plurals.

    I want two twenties, five tens, one five, and five ones.


    Can I have the change in coins?


    I want all in change./I want all in changes.
