Adding Money

Money Money Money

In our everyday lives we use money to buy so many things. But what we may not realize is that every time we make a purchase we are using math! In this lesson we will use a real life problem and learn how we add money in our everyday lives. So let's get going!

Toy Store

Bella has been saving and she now has a total of $250. She wants to go to the toy store and buy a new game for her X-Box that costs $36.50. While at the toy store, she saw a doll that her sister really wanted. She bought the doll for $24.57. She also bought a remote control car for her brother that cost her $15.99. What was the the total amount of money that Bella spent at the Toy Store? What was her change?

X-Box Game $36.50
Doll $24.57
RC Car $15.99

Total $77.06

$250 minus $77.06  equals  $172.94

That means that Bella spent a total of $77.06 and got $172.94 as her change!
