How to Quickly Make Change - After purchasing at a grocery store, when the clerk hands over the change and sale receipt to you at the checkout, it is really difficult to count back the change. Since checkouts are usually crowded, and there is a long queue waiting before you to check out, it is really difficult to count the change quickly. But in a customer's case, this process has to be done once as a customer have to count their change only. In a clerk's case, this is something repetitive. A clerk probably has to count change hundreds of times in a day. So, how to count back change quickly? At first, it can be a bit difficult, but like other mathematical techniques, it can be sped up with practice. That is why cashiers and clerks are very fast at counting back change. Secondly, a clerk should take a look at the cash register, where the amount of change is displayed. By looking at it, they can save the time of calculation and count the change. Also, to avoid subtraction in case if the cash register doesn't display the change back amount, a clerk should count to the amount the customer has given them. For example, if the bill is $39.50, and the customer gives the clerk a 50, all the clerk has to do is count from 39.50 to 50. These are a few helpful tips on counting the change quickly that can save you some time in such situations. These worksheets and lessons will help students learn to convert values from dollars to cents and back again.
