How Did The Blind Man Catch This Cheating Cashier?

Algebra Level 2

In the United States, the dollar bills in general circulation come in denominations of $1, $5, $10, $20, $50, $100. These bills are all the same size, shape and texture, which makes it hard for a blind person, like Matthew, to tell the difference between the bills.

Matthew went shopping at a toy store for his nephew’s birthday. He bought a Spiderman action figure that cost $25, a LEGO City Light Repair Truck for $13, and a Despicable Me 2 DVD for $20. He went up to the counter and handed over a new crisp $100 bill to pay for these purchases. The teller handed him some number of notes in return, and Matthew knew for certain that his change was incorrect.

Which of the following is a possibility for the number of bills that the teller handed to Matthew?
