Madge Monday

Poor Madgie seems sick today, on her day off.
But here’s something she did last week. In school they’re doing math with decimals, and they’re approaching it by play-acting a diner or restaurant.
The amounts listed were something along the order of 91 cents for a cheeseburger, 26 cents for a falafel.
Then Madge came home and made up her own menu, and you can tell she’s living in New York (the spelling is hers).

Pancake 6$
Pizza, pepproni tomatoes 22$
Tea 4$
Chcoclate cake 10$

(You non-New-Yorkers may laugh at this, but her pricing is quite representative.)
