This week in Maths, we are revising money. 


WALT convert amounts between pence (p) and pounds (£)

Remember your learn it: £1 = 100p! 


Here are 120p or £1.20


When writing £ and p you need a decimal point. This shows how many of the numbers are showing the £ and how many are showing the p.

In money, because the biggest possible number of p is 99p, the decimal is always followed by two p digits. Amounts of money cannot have one p digit or three p digits: 


The last two digits will always be your p, so 142p = £1.42

142p could never be £14.2 or £142

307p would still keep 2 digits after the decimal point:  ----> £3.07

370p would still keep 2 digits after the decimal point. 

ALWAYS count in two decimal places.


367p --> £3.67         45638p  ------>£456.38


Think about.... How many £ in 524p? 

                         Where would you put the decimal point in

                         this number, to make it £ and p?                            1489p?


See below for the video explanation and your tasks for today.
