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?

Thanks

Divide:

$85 / $5.95 = 14.285

14 * $5.95 = 83.30

$85.00 - 83.30 = ____ change

85/5.95= 14.28

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?
