Subject: Problem solving

My sons teacher wants him to show all work including equation, solution and final answer in words. I am stumped as to how to help him with that. The problem is: Tom purchased a CD. The total amount including tax, was $43.oo How much change did he receive from $50.00. We know the answer is $7.00 but how do we put everything into words.
