Chase has $80$ cents in pennies.
Out of $5 \left(1 + 4\right)$ coins $1$ is nickel and $4$ are pennies.
So Out of $100$ coins $\frac{100}{5} = 20$ are nickels and $\frac{100}{5} \cdot 4 = 80$ are pennies.
$1$ penny $= 1$ cent and $1$ nickel $= 5$ cents
Chase has $80 \cdot 1 = 80$ cents in pennies. {Ans]
