Question: write a program in java that prompts the user for...

Question details

Write a program in JAVA that prompts the user for a dollar amount. The program outputs the fewest number of coins needed. For example:

Enter total amount: $1.71

You have 6 quarters, 2 dimes, 0 nickels, and 1 penny.

Note: due to numerical error[1] you must convert the initial input to an integer – the number of pennies before performing any calculations. Once computed as a double (i.e. 171.0), you have been supplied a method (convertToInt, which you MUST use) to convert the double to an integer (i.e. 171). Only then proceed to compute number of coins.
