 # Subtracting with Money: Subtracting Pounds and Pence

In this worksheet, students subtract the given amounts of money, giving their answers in pounds. Key stage:  KS 2

Curriculum topic:   Measurement

Curriculum subtopic:   Solve Four Operations Problems

Difficulty level:   ### QUESTION 1 of 10

Remember that there are 100 p in a pound.

So if we subtract 1 p from £1 we get 99 p or £0.99

Example

Subtract 253 p from £10.

Working in pounds, we must work out £10.00 - £2.53

Remember there are decimals when we subtract with money and we need to consider the place values of pounds and pence. The answer must be written with a £ sign, so the answer is    £7.47

• Question 1

Work out:

£2 - 15p

£1.85
EDDIE SAYS
Subtract £2.00 - £0.15 1. Start with the hundredths and regroup the 0 so it becomes 10. Subtract 10 - 5 = 5. 2. Subtract the tenths. When we regroup, the 2 in the ones place becomes a 1 and the 0 in the tenths becomes a 9. Subtract 9 -1 = 8. 3. Subtract the ones 1 - 0 = 1. Answer: £1.85
• Question 2

Work out:

£12 - 15p

£11.85
EDDIE SAYS
Subtract £12.00 - £0.15 1. Start with the hundredths and regroup the 0 so it becomes 10. Subtract 10 - 5 = 5. 2. Subtract the tenths. When we regroup, the 2 in the ones column becomes a 1 and the 0 in the tenths becomes a 9. Subtract 9 -1 = 8. 3. Subtract the ones 1 - 0 = 1 and the tens, 1 - 0 = 1. Answer: £11.85
• Question 3

Work out:

£10 - 45p

£9.55
EDDIE SAYS
Subtract £10.00 - £0.45 1. Start with the hundredths and regroup the 0 so it becomes 10. Subtract 10 - 5 = 5. 2. Subtract the tenths. When we regroup, the 0 in the tenths column becomes a 9. Subtract 9 - 4 = 5. 3. When we regroup, the 0 in the ones column becomes a 9 and the 1 in the hundreds column becomes a 0. Subtract the ones 9 - 0 = 9 and the tens, 0 - 0 = 0. Answer: £9.55
• Question 4

Work out:

£10 - 145p

£8.55
EDDIE SAYS
Subtract £10.00 - £1.45 1. Start with the hundredths and regroup the 0 so it becomes 10. Subtract 10 - 5 = 5. 2. Subtract the tenths. When we regroup, the 0 in the tenths column becomes a 9. Subtract 9 - 4 = 5. 3. When we regroup, the 0 in the ones column becomes a 9 and the 1 in the hundreds column becomes a 0. Subtract the ones 9 - 1 = 8 and the tens, 0 - 0 = 0. Answer: £8.55
• Question 5

Work out:

£10 - 347p

£6.53
EDDIE SAYS
Subtract £10.00 - £3.47 1. Start with the hundredths and regroup the 0 so it becomes 10. Subtract 10 - 7 = 3. 2. Subtract the tenths. When we regroup, the 0 in the tenths column becomes a 9. Subtract 9 - 4 = 5. 3. When we regroup, the 0 in the ones column becomes a 9 and the 1 in the hundreds column becomes a 0. Subtract the ones 9 - 3 = 6 and the tens, 0 - 0 = 0. Answer: £6.53
• Question 6

Work out:

£100 - 20p

£99.80
EDDIE SAYS
Subtract £100.00 - £0.20 1. Subtract the hundredths, 0 - 0 = 0. 2. Subtract the tenths. When we regroup, the 0 in the tenths column becomes a 10. Subtract 10 - 2 = 8. 3. Regroup and the ones and tens both become 9, while the hundreds column becomes 0. Subtract 9 - 0 = 9, 9 - 0 = 9 and 0 - 0 = 0. Answer: £99.80
• Question 7

Work out:

£100 - 220p

£97.80
EDDIE SAYS
Subtract £100.00 - £2.20 1. Subtract the hundredths, 0 - 0 = 0. 2. Subtract the tenths. When we regroup, the 0 in the tenths column becomes a 10. Subtract 10 - 2 = 8. 3. Regroup and the ones and tens both become 9, while the hundreds column becomes 0. Subtract 9 - 2 = 7, 9 - 0 = 9 and 0 - 0 = 0. Answer: £97.80
• Question 8

Work out:

£100 - 298p

£97.02
EDDIE SAYS
Subtract £100.00 - £2.98 1. Regroup so the 0 in the hundredths place becomes a 10 and subtract 10 - 8 = 2. 2. Subtract the tenths. When we regroup, the tenths column becomes a 9, so 9 - 9 = 0. 3. Regroup and the ones and tens both become 9, while the hundreds column becomes 0. Subtract 9 - 2 = 7, 9 - 0 = 9 and 0 - 0 = 0. Answer: £97.02
• Question 9

Work out:

£100 - 1205p

£87.95
EDDIE SAYS
Subtract £100.00 - £12.05 1. Regroup and subtract the hundredths, 10 - 5 = 5. 2. Subtract the tenths. When we regroup, the 0 in the tenths column becomes a 9. Subtract 9 - 0 = 9. 3. Regroup and the ones and tens both become 9, while the hundreds column becomes 0. Subtract 9 - 2 = 7, 9 - 1 = 8 and 0 - 0 = 0. Answer: £87.95
• Question 10

Work out:

£100 - 1234p

£87.66
EDDIE SAYS
Subtract £100.00 - £12.34 1. Regroup and subtract the hundredths, 10 - 4 = 6. 2. Subtract the tenths. When we regroup, the 0 in the tenths column becomes a 9. Subtract 9 - 3 = 6. 3. Regroup and the ones and tens both become 9, while the hundreds column becomes 0. Subtract 9 - 2 = 7, 9 - 1 = 8 and 0 - 0 = 0. Answer: £87.66
