So I am doing this project where i have to convert pennies into Dollars, Quarters, Dimes, and Nickels.
I am using Integer Division and Mod Arithmetic. I read the chapter that i am doing and there is a short paragraph about it that doesn't really help me.

Heres a line of code i did

Me.uiMessageLabel.Text = Pennies \ 100 & " dollars " & Pennies Mod 4 & " quarters"

I enter 1875 into my program and it shows and I get 18 dollars and 3 quarters.

When I punch in 1877 I get 18 dollars and 1 quarter.

What am I doing wrong?

77 mod 4 is 1. That's what you told it to do, and that is what it did. What were you expecting?

77/4 = 19.25 with a remainder of 1. That's what the mod function does; it returns the remainder.

EDIT: 75 mod 4 equals three, so you only accidentally got the right number.
