Welcome to the Ice Scream Shop. Here, all the ice cream is made and sold by creepy creatures. There’s a job opening for a new cashier—and the job is yours! (The owner wanted to hire a werewolf, but you’ll do.)

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.

Making Change

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?

  $4.00
– $3.25
  $0.75
