Larry decided that he wants to go buy some candy so he gets off of the couch and starts running. He runs until he arrives at the corner store. In the corner store he purchases 3 yellow candies, 2 red candies, and 1 orange candy. The clerk lets Larry know that the total price after taxes is $1.75. 

He looks in his pocket and finds two $1 coins, three $0.25 coins, eleven $0.10 coins, and one $0.05 coin.

Using only the coins and paying with exact change, how many different ways can Larry pay for his candy?
