Paul owes Paula 35 cents and has a pocket full of 5-cent coins, 10-cent coins, and 25-cent coins that he can use to pay her. What is the difference between

the largest and the smallest number of coins he can use to pay her?

The least coins to pay back would be one 35 cent coin, but there isn't such a coin. But we can use 2 coins: one 25 cents, and one of 10 cents: so the smallest amount is 2 coins.

the largest amount of coins is achieved by using the coins with the smallest value: this would be the 5-cent-coins. so we'd need 35/7=7; 7 such coins

so the different is between 7 and 2 coins, that is 5 coins difference!
