Example

Add up the total value of these coins in pence.

 

                    

 

Answer

In pence, we have 1 + 1 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 5 + 10 + 20 + 50.

 

Add up from the largest:

50 + 20 = 70

70 + 10 = 80

80 + 5 = 85

85 + 2 + 2 + 2 = 85 + 6 = 91

91 + 1 + 1 = 91 + 2 = 93p

 

Sometimes, it is easier to add up the totals of each type of coin, starting with the largest.

so we have... 50 + 20 + 10 + 5 + 6 + 2 = 93p
