Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

To work out how many pence there are in a sum of money, we need to look at the number of pounds, 10 p coins and 1p coins.

Remember there are 100 p in a pound.


Example 1

How many pence are there in £2.46?



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

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 = 246 p



Example 2

£26.52 × 100 = 2652 p
