Two Coins Add up to 30 Cents One Is Not a Nickel?

Answer

This is actually a popular riddle rather than a mathematical problem. When someone asks how it is possible for two coins to add up to thirty cents when one is not a nickel, the important word in the question is 'one,' as in only one of the coins is not a nickel, not that neither of them are nickels. So two coins that add up to 30 cents are one quarter and one nickel. Those are two coins, and one of them, the quarter, is not a nickel.
