Junior has saved money in his piggybank over the winter. He wants to buy a $30 computer game. If he has 14 one-dollar bills, 16 half dollars, 12 quarters, 8 dimes, 25 nickels, and 10 pennies, how much more does he need to borrow from Dad to buy the game?
Detailed Explanation
Convert the change to dollars or fractions of dollars and add:
14 dollars = 14.00
16 half dollars = 8.00
12 quarters = 3.00
8 dimes = 0.80
25 nickels = 1.25
10 pennies = 0.10
----------
Sum = 27.15
Subtract the total from 30.00 to determine how much money Junior has to borrow: 30.00 – 27.15 = 2.85.
