I thought of giving a $50 and a $5 and they give you back a $20.

Better if you clearly specify the available bills.

I like this one; very fun! Just one thing, though: I think it belongs in the "Trick" category, instead of logic. We naturally assume one person has to use the three bills when in fact you can exchange bills with your creditor. Just a small detail .

I thought the same as the one who said pay three bills+the rest in quarters

I thought they used a check, and the bills were on the hats they were wearing. Well, that's two, and there was a duck in the room. There. Perfect. Good teaser!

The question asks, "Using only three bills...", not "Using three bills and anything else you can think of...". Hence, quarters, hats and ducks are banned!
