    The answer is $70 in merchandise and $30 in change that you gave back.

    You're forgetting about the potential gains of the original $100 @Ik0n88x :D
    The $100 could've been invested at say 8% or it could've been used to back a horse at 100 to 1?

    Really.......................$100.00
    The original $100 from the register. BUT returned! Therefore $0.00
    He literally gave her $70.00 in unpaid merchandise.
    Then he gave her an additional $30.00 cash.
