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?

sure, you can say $1.70
