#### Worksheet Overview

This activity is about working out change when you pay with coins.

Example

I give 50p to a shopkeeper.

How much change would I get if I buy three pens for 5p each?

Work out how much the pens cost:

3 × 5p = 15p

Then subtract this from the 50p you give the shopkeeper:

50p - 15p = 35p

Let's practise this in the questions so that you will know you're being given the correct change next time you go shopping!!
