Bags of Dollars

Contributed by Doug Briggs

puzzle : image for dollar

Divide $80 (in whole $ increments) into a number of bags so that I can ask for any amount between $1 and $80, and you can give me the proper amount by giving me a certain number of these bags without opening them. What is the minimum number of bags you will require?
