Brian wants to buy a muffin that costs $0.80. How many different combinations of nickels and dimes can be used to make $0.80?

Not criticizing, just curious.  Would 16 N & 0 D, and 0 N & 8 D, be considered combinations, since there is only one type of coin used?

Yes i believe they should be included.  Even though there is a zero count of one of them, each one is still a valid combination.
