Have you ever stood at a cash register with an amount owing of $14.28 and you hand the cashier a twenty dollar bill and then as a second thought added three pennies? You expect to get a five dollar bill and three quarters in return. What you really get is a dazed and confused cashier who had already entered the twenty dollar bill into the computerized cash register and wants to hand you back the five dollar bill along with seventy-two cents in change. What are those three pennies in your hand for?
We are becoming so reliant on computers that even a simple problem such as the one illustrated above are beyond the calculating capabilities of many. Don't let that happen to you!
