No.

Add the 4 prices and subtract from $15.

You can estimate by rounding to the nearest dollar and then adding.

add the costs, and subtract from 15.

Estimating 2.5+1+1+1.5=6

15-6 is not a ten dollar bill in change.

Of course, a few years ago I bought gasoline walked into the store to pay, got also a cup of coffee, offered the clerk $50.00 bill, he told me my change was $512.00, and he couldn't give it to me as he did not have that much in the register. I told him he did it wrong, he pointed to the electronic display, and told me to look! $512.00. I noticed the next week he was gone.

Estimating is a very valuable tool, it allows you to check the register.
