use the digits 0 2 4 5 6 and 8 to write two money amounts that you can subtract by trading one dime for ten pennies. Then solve

I think no one has helped you with this problem because we don't understand it. It is not worded clearly.
Please ask your teacher to help you. 
Hello Ms Sue....thanks for trying but this is exactly how the question is written in the book. LOL and this is expected of an 8 year old child.

Any chance your from Beverly Park ?

No. I live in Michigan.

ah the cold! Well thank you again for trying! :)

You're welcome.
If you can, I'd appreciate it if you post the teacher's response. The question simply makes no sense to me. And since no math tutor answered it, I assume others don't understand it either. 
2x3=6

I know this is two years old, but I don't want anyone else to suffer the rage I just experienced trying to figure this piece of crap question with my 3rd grader. I think they are asking you to come up with two amounts such as $5.20 (5 dollars and 2 dimes) and $4.68 (any combination), where you would have to make change for one of your dimes in order to give the second amount away. If you have 5 dollars and 2 dimes and wanted to give someone 4 dollars, 6 dimes, and 8 pennies, you would have to trade 1 dime for 10 pennies.
