Answer:

She should get back 9.76

Explanation:

If Liz pays 15.24 and she gives 25, then to find out how much she gets back, you would subtract the two amounts to see whats left.

NOTE: Subtract what she gave with what she owes

You would do,

25 - 15.24 = 9.76

Answer:

Liz should get back #$4.76# in change.

Explanation:

The amount of change that Liz will get back is the difference between the amount she gave and the cost of the CD.

Since she gave a #$20# bill, and the CD costs #$15.24#, the difference is:

#20.00#
-#15.24#


#4.76#

Hence the amount of change Liz should get back is #$4.76#.
