MAKING CHANGE USING COINS AND DOLLARS What Is Making Change? Making change means giving money back to someone after they have made a purchase and paid more than they owed. This is done using dollars and coins (quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies). You can subtract, add, multiply, and divide money when making change. How to make change using coins and dollars: Solve these problems like you would solve word problems. Subtract the amount spent from the amount of money you have. Example: Sammy went to the movies and paid $7.50 for a ticket. He paid with a $10.00 bill. How much change did Sammy get back when he bought his ticket? Use subtraction: $10.00 - $7.50 = $2.50 Try This! Joe bought a shirt that cost $13.99. He gave the clerk $20.00. How much change did he receive? ________________________ Lisa works in the rental room of a roller skating rink. A customer rented skates for $4.05 and gave her $5.00. How much change did Lisa give the customer? ________________________ © Copyright NewPath Learning. All Rights Reserved.
