In this worksheet, solve money problems.
Two apples and a banana cost £1.25. If the banana costs 35 p, how much does one apple cost?
First we subtract the cost of the banana from the total:
£1.25 - £0.35 = £0.90 or 90 p
Two apples cost 90 p, so we halve this to find the cost of one apple.
90 p ÷ 2 = 45 p or £0.45
An apple costs 45 p or £0.45.
