### QUESTION 1 of 10

Remember that there are 100 pence in £1.

You subtract if you want to work out the change.

Example

Jack buys 3 ice creams costing 54p each.

How much change does he get from £2?

First we work out 54 × 3.

This is the same as 50 × 3 added to 4 × 3 = £1.50 + 12p = £1.62

Then we count on from £1.62 to £1.70 to £2.00 to work out the change.

The change is 8p + 10p + 10p + 10p = 38p

Jack buys 3 ice creams costing 52p each.

How much does this cost him in pounds?
