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

  1. Divide:

    $85 / $5.95 = 14.285

    14 * $5.95 = 83.30

    $85.00 - 83.30 = ____ change

  2. 85/5.95= 14.28
    so se can buy 14 cd
    the change = 8500-590*14= 170 cents

  3. 170 cents? Isn't it easier to say she'd have $1.70 in change?
