3 Quarters                                                        3 ways

3 quarters, 2 dimes, 1 nickel

3 quarters, 1 dime, 3 nickels

3 quarters, 0 dime, 5 nickels

2 Quarters                                                         5 ways

2 quarters, 5 dimes, 0 nickel

2 quarters, 4 dimes, 2 nickels

2 quarters, 3 dimes, 4 nickels

2 quarters, 2 dimes, 6 nickels

2 quarters, 1 dime, 8 nickels

1 Quarter                                                            3 ways

1 quarter, 6 dimes, 3 nickels

1 quarter, 5 dimes, 5 nickels

0 Quarter                                                             1 way

You found 13 ways.  I can't find a 14th one,

so it looks like we both got the same answer.
