Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

In this worksheet, solve money problems.

 

Example

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

 

Answer

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.

Two apples and a banana cost £1.04.

If a banana costs 22 p, find the cost of one apple in pence.
