}

Challenge: Cash Register

Link to the challenge:

The aim is to implement a cash counter.

consider you are the cashier at a shop. Some one bought things worth 48 bucks and they gave you 50 bucks as cash. Now you have to return the balance which is 2 bucks. Now you have to check in the drawer for the balance.

This is the scenario

function checkCashRegister(price, cash, cid) {
let b = price - cash;
}

Now consider the arguments

  1. price - the price of what the customer bought, which is 48 in the example mentioned above

  2. cash - the cash the customer given to you - 50 bucks

  3. cid - cash drawer itself - for example

 [["PENNY", 1.01], ["NICKEL", 2.05], ["DIME", 3.1], ["QUARTER", 4.25]]

here you have pennies worth 1.01, nickel worth 2.05 …etc in the drawer

now you have to implement a function that will check the cash drawer and give the balance and update the drawer.

Thats all

but what is second arg in the answer ([quarter, 0,5]), why it is not equal to 4.25, what quarter really is.

already thank you for your last answer^^

because to give change to a guy coming in with $19.5 worth of items, and a $20 bill, you would give him $0.5 (two quarters) back.

To return an answer of [quarter,4.25] would be like saying since the customer needs change in quarters, I will give him all the quarters in my register.
