#### Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we will be solving money problems.

Example

Two apples and a banana cost £1.25.  If the banana costs 35p, how much does one apple cost?

First, we subtract the cost of the banana from the total:

£1.25 - £0.35 = £0.90 or 90p

Two apples cost 90p, so we halve this to find the cost of one apple:

90p ÷ 2 = 45p or £0.45

An apple costs 45p or £0.45.

That wasn't too tricky, was it?

Let's have a go at some questions.
