This Spanish Easy Review math quiz takes a look at money. Does money really talk? Some people think so. It says, "Oh, use me to buy this," or "Oh, use me to buy that." Some people think that money 'flies' as in, "It flies out the door as soon as I get it." All joking aside - everyone does need to use money. By now you’ve already had some experience with your own money either earned through doing chores, or having an allowance, or gift money received. Some money you even saved and then it becomes a fun task to count up how much you have saved. Counting means - math. Yup - that means that money is math! Money deals with numbers and numbers do talk in the sense that they tell you answers to things!
