Will she have enough for her groceries?
How quickly can you calculate the approximate cost of her shopping? What will she need to do before she gets to the register?
Is she over or under her budget?
How close to $100 can you get with the groceries in her cart?
Do you need to put items back? Can you buy more than one of the items in the trolley to get you to $100. Show your rounding and calculations in your maths grid book.
