    ¿Cuál libro compras para ti? ¿Cuál libro compras para tu amig@?

    C. info-gap activity En un restaurante

    A bill from a restaurant

    You went out to dinner with a friend who introduced you to several people in a large group. You asked the mesero to bring everyone their own individual cuenta. You and your partner use a credit card, but the rest of the group all pay in cash. When the mesero returns, all the change is scrambled. Work with your partner to determine the amount of change due.

    Estudiante 1

    Paso 1: You have the cuentas of everyone in the group. Share with your partner how much each cuenta was. Your partner has made a list of how much everyone paid. Get the missing information from your partner and use it to fill out the chart. Then, decide how much change each person should get back. Be sure to say the numbers in Spanish! Hint: $12.90 in Spanish is doce dólares con noventa centavos.

      Cuenta Pagó (paid) Cambio (change needed)
    Sofía 24.86 USD    
    Raúl 22.47 USD    
    Felipe 13.12 USD    
    Luis 14.92 USD    
    Soraya 27.25 USD    

    Paso 2: Double check that you gave each person the right amount of change. Write the name of the party member next to the corresponding amount of money s/he should have received.

    ___________________________ cinco dólares con ocho centavos ___________________________ dos dólares con setenta y cinco centavos ___________________________ seis dólares con ochenta y ocho centavos ___________________________ dos dólares con cincuenta y tres centavos ___________________________ cinco dólares con catorce centavos
