Lee says,

Lee's starting at 100. Every time she adds 10 pennies she says the number. Since she starts at 100 and then adds the first group of 10, the first number she says is 110. She adds the second group of 10 more pennies to 110 and now she says 120. She does this 5 times to add 5 groups of pennies to the jar. More simply, she needs to count by 10, five times: 110, 120, 130, 140, 150.
