    Three Of Each of

    Suppose I have three $1 bills, three $5 bills, three $10 bills. I want use "each" to describe them:


    1. "I have three of each of $1 bills, $5 bills, and $10 bills."
    2. "I have three each of $1 bills, $5 bills, and $10 bills."


    Is one of them wrong?

    "Each" is not needed. I have three...

    Re: Three Of Each of

    2. is correct. Technically, so is 1, but we wouldn't normally use two 'of's like that.
    You could say,"I have $1 bills, $5 bills, and $10 bills. I have three of each." or "I have three each."
