I have a math problem.
Joleen saved $85 dollars from babysitting to spend on CDs. Every Monday a music store has all CDs on sale for $5.95 each. How much change will she receive buying as many CDs as possible?
$85 / $5.95 = 14.285
14 * $5.95 = 83.30
$85.00 - 83.30 = ____ change
so se can buy 14 cd
the change = 8500-590*14= 170 cents
170 cents? Isn't it easier to say she'd have $1.70 in change?
sure, you can say $1.70
