Worksheet Overview

You should know how much each coin is worth.

 

1 p     

 

2 p      

 

 

5 p    

 

 

10 p 

 

 

20 p 

 

50 p 

 

 

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 = 93 p

 

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 = 93 p
