Happy Thursday.  Today we are going to find change when using money.  This is just like being a shopkeeper.  If you have already set up your shop, you can use this to help you today.  Like this:


You buy a bottle of orange juice for 85p.  You pay with £1.  What change do you get?

Remember £1 = 100p

You need to take away your item from the money you have.

£1 - 85p =

100p - 85p = 15p

You can use a number line to help you.  Your change is 15p.

You can check your answer using your fact families.  85p + 15p = 100p.


Now it's your turn...
