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**
