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.
Maths Questions :
WALT use decimal notation in money
Challenge: Convert these amounts of pence into pounds!
Remember: the last two digits will be the p e.g. 3567p = £35.67
