Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

In this worksheet, you must find the total spent and then use the shopkeeper's method to work out the change by "counting on".

Example

I have a £10 note and spend £6.44 on a DVD and £0.99 on a pencil.

How much change will I get?

 

Answer

First we must add £6.44 and £0.99.

Here we pretend that the pencil costs £1 and then take off 1p.

Total = £6.44 + £1.00 - £0.01 = £7.44 - £0.01 = £7.43

 

Using the diagram, we count on to convenient amounts of money to find the change. 

This is known as the shopkeeper's method.

 

 

 

Add the red amounts to get the total change of    £2.57
