How to Make Change.

Salesmen usually make change by addition. They have the money to count out, and in doing so they add to the amount of the purchase until they reach the amount of the bill presented. For example, if you buy something worth $3.35 and present a ten-dollar bill in payment, you will probably receive in return 5 cents, 10 cents, 50 cents, $1, and $5; the salesman saying 40, 50, $4, $5; $10. This method is least liable to error.

Accuracy and rapidity in counting out change can best be acquired by practice behind the counter or at the cash-desk.
