In this far-off country there are no coins or notes, only "cuts" of 84 centimes, 132 centimes, 231 centimes and 308 centimes, but in infinite quantity.
So obviously the inhabitants can not do the extra for some sums, like 85 cents for example, but hey it does not seem to bother them more than that.
On the other hand they say that from a certain sum they can pay everything exactly.
What is the largest sum of money S expressed in euro cents that they can not pay exactly?
How to pay exactly S + 1?
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
