How To Make Change Quickly

Always consider the amount of purchase as if that much money were
already counted out, then add to amount of purchase enough small change
to make an even dollar, counting out the even dollars last until full
amount is made up.

If the purchase amounts to 57 cents, and you are handed $2.00 in
payment, count out 43 cents first to make an even dollar. Then layout
the other dollar.

Should the purchase be $3.69, to be taken out of $20.00, begin with
$3.69 as the basis and make up even $4.00 by laying out 31 cents. This
31 cents with the amount of the purchase you will consider as $4.00, and
count out even dollars to make up the $20.00 which the customer has
handed in.
