Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we will work out how much change needs to be given when we pay for something with a £1 coin.


one pound coin  


£1 = 100p



How much change is given from £1 when I pay for something costing 75p



The number sentence for working this out is £1 - 75p = ? as we have a pound and we take away 75 from this pound. 

Remember that £1 is 100p, so we can do a subtraction calculation: 100 - 75


The best way to work this out is to find the difference, so instead of taking it away, we count up from 75p to 100 (£1)

Shopkeepers count on from 75p as in the diagram.
