A penny is worth 1 cent, a dime is worth 10 cents and a dollar is worth 100 cents.
How to add dollars, dimes and pennies.
 Count by hundreds the number of dollars to find the number of cents the dollars are worth
 Starting at this total, count up by tens for the number of dimes.

 Count by hundreds seven times for the seven dollars 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700
 Count by tens for the 4 dimes: 710, 720, 730, 740
 Count by ones for the 3 pennies: 741, 742, 743
