5.55 moola. I know dat may sound steep but it's one of those special blends. See, I'm not well. Things have been rough for me. I only get a .25 of a moola from every 4th person that walks by. I got .45 moola already. I need ta know how many people will have to pass by before I can get a drink...UUURRR I mean coffee?"

I feel completely stupid........

You need 5.55 moola for a drink coffee.

You already have 0.45 moola, so you need 5.10 more moola.

At 0.25 moola per pop, you need (5.10 / 0.25) = 20.4 pops.

Since your pops come in quanta of 4 peeps, and not fractions, you need 21 pops.

(21 pops) x (4 peeps per pop)  =  84 more peeps must pass by
