Language/Type: Python parameters return

Write a function named count_quarters that accepts an integer representing a number of cents as a parameter and returns the number of quarter coins represented by that many cents. Don't count any whole dollars, because those would be dispensed as dollar bills. For example, count_quarters(64) would return 2, because 64 cents is equivalent to 2 quarters with 14 cents left over. A call of count_quarters(1278) would return 3, because after the 12 dollars are taken out, 3 quarters remain in the 78 cents that are left.

Function: Write a Python function as described, not a complete program.
