An absent minded clerk switched the dollars and cents when he cashed a cheque for Mr Brown , giving him dollars instead of cents, and cents instead of dollars.
After buying a five cent newspaper,Brown discovered that he left excatly twice as much as his original cheque.


What was the amount of the cheque?


P.S : i read this in a book where the solution was not given!
