Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we will be working out how many pence there are in a sum of money by looking at the number of pounds, 10p coins and 1p coins.


Remember that there are 100p in a pound.


Example 1

How many pence are there in £2.46?



£2.46 is the same as 200p + 40p + 6p = 246p


1 pound1 pound

10 p10 p10 p10 p

1 p1 p1 p1 p1 p1 p


We can also find the result if we multiply £2.46 × 100 = 246p

Or simply remove the decimal point!


Example 2

How many pence are there in £26.52?



£26.52 × 100 = 2652p


Top tip: The decimal point separates the pounds and the pence, so if we remove it, we end up with just the pence!
