    Default Situation: exchange 5 one-dollar bills for one 5-dollar bill

    Hi,

    I ran into a situation where I needed a 5-dollar bill to load it into my smart-card for laundry.
    I walked in a restaurant near by and asked the cashier to give me a 5-dollar bill in exchange for five 1-dollar bills.
    How would you say that?

    Thanks,
    Alex.

    "H​i. Could you change these for a five please?"
