Mental Math – Making Change

Take turns making up money problems for each other to solve.

Here is an example to get you started:

I put $5.00 of gas in my car and buy a fruit juice for $1.09.  I give the clerk a twenty-dollar bill.  How much change should I get back?

Answer:  The total of my purchases was $6.09.  I should get $13.91 back, so you would need to tell me that I get 1 ten-dollar bill, 3 one-dollar bills, 3 quarters, 1 dime, 1 nickel, and 1 penny. Make the questions as easy or as hard as necessary to make it fun and challenging for everyone!
