    Hello, I know children can find the amount of change to give back by subtracting, but they cant use calculators at the register if they are working at a store, so therefore how to teach them to count back change, this is the way public schools teach it but there is also a large amount of adults who learned it that way and still cannot count back change without using subtraction or calculators. thanks
