Mathematics 1st Lesson

Making and writing amounts of money

 

What coins could we use?

We could use:

(a)   + = £1.10

or

 

(b)  + +  = £1.10

Look at

(a) 20p + 20p + 20p = 60p or £0.60

When writing an amount that contains 0 pounds we would write it as £0. 60


£1 = 100p

Remember to separate the £ and p with a decimal point .

(b) £2 + 10p + 10p + 10p would be £2.30

 

(c) We have:

£2 +£1 + 50p + 20p +10p

First add the pounds together (£)

£2+£1 = £3

Then add the pence together (p)

50p +20p +10p= 80P

 

Now add the 2 amounts together

£3 + 80p = £3.80

Or  you could use your place value knowledge

   H T O

    2 0 0

    1 0 0

       5 0

       2 0

   +  1 0

                                   3 8 0   = 380p or £3.80
