Chapter 15 Challenge Project

Design a Menu

Add and Subtract Decimals

You need to design a menu and include at least 20 items and their prices.  Then you need to walk around and ask at least five adults who are not busy to choose at least five items from your menu.  Make sure you write them down so you remember. 

 You will then go back to class and add the bills for each of the five adults.  Now go back to the adults and ask them if they would like to pay with $5, $10, $20, $50, or $100.  Thank the adults for eating at your restaurant and go back to class and find the change for each bill. 

 Now that you have completed adding and subtracting decimals, display your information including the bills for each adult and also the change each would receive if they were to have paid with $5, $10, $20, $50, or $100.
