As cashier, it’s your job to make change for your customers. (We had a cash register, but the 7-foot lizard that used to work here broke it.) We’ll show you how to make change yourself on page 9. At this ice-cream shop, the only problem you may have is customers who are frozen with fear!
What to Do
Answer the questions based on Making Change and the price board.
Change: The money customers get back if they paid with more money than the cost of what was bought.
-To add or subtract money, line up the decimal points of the dollar amounts.
-Then add or subtract as if you were working with whole numbers.
Example: A girl owes $3.25 but pays with $4. How much change should she get?

Now try this standardized- test-type question.
Frank N. Stine, one of the other workers at the shop, wants you to fill his order. He wants a 1-scoop Cough-ee cone and and an Ice-Scream Sandwitch. Since he’s an employee at the shop, he gets $.25 off each item he buys. Frank pays with $3. How much change should you give him?
