The cashier problem

Hi! Can someone help me with this problem? I don’t understand why the code doesn’t work…Thanks.

The Cashier Problem

Create a program that helps a cashier give adequate change to customers. The program should return the amount of notes and coins for the customer’s change.

Example: If the price is €3.75 and the paid amount is €50, then the client should receive €46.25 back in change.

  • The expected output should be:

  • 2 x €20 // 2 twenty euro notes

  • 1 x €5 // 1 five euro note

  • 1 x €1 // 1 euro

  • 1 x €0.2 // 1 twenty cent coin

  • 1 x €0.05 // 1 five cent coin

Example: Price: €4.50, Paid amount: €20, Change: 15.50

  • Expected output:

  • 1 x €10

  • 1 x €5

  • 1 x €0.5

  • Notes

  • Include outputs for exceptions e.g. price: €4, paid amount: €3.

const cashier=(price, cash)=>{
    let amountOfNotes;
    let change = parseFloat((cash - price).toFixed(2));
    console.log(`Price: ${price}`);
    console.log(`Amount:${cash}`);
    console.log(`Change:${change}`);
    

    let current=[
        ["one cent coin",.01],
        ["two cents coin",.02],
        ["five cents coin",.05],
        ["ten cents coin",.10],
        ["twenty cents coin",.20],
        ["fifty cents coin",.50],
        ["one euro coin",1],
        ["two euros coin",2],
        ["five euros notes",5],
        ["ten euros notes",10],
        ["twenty euros notes",20],
        ["fifty euros notes",50],
        ["hundred euros notes",100],
        ["two hundred euros notes",200],
        ["five hundred euros notes",500]
    
    ]

        for(let i=0;i<current.length;i++){
        current.reverse();
        console.log(current);
        if(change>=current[i][1]){
            amountOfNotes=Math.floor(change/current[i][1]);
            console.log(amountOfNotes)
            change=parseFloat((change%current[i][1]).toFixed(2));
            console.log(`${amountOfNotes} x ${current[i][1]} // ${amountOfNotes}x ${current[i][0]}`)
        }
    } 

    
}
cashier(3.25,100);
