Value of coins

A light hearted task

I prepared a small quiz to help a youngster with counting out money. I have taken some pictures and present them here as a short task which may be useful practice for some readers.

Here are some a piles of penny coins ~ arranged in different ways. Some of the coins are very grubby!

Counting two lines of coins
Two lines of coins ~ A How many coins?

If you are writing answers down then you can use the letters keep track of things.

D How many coins? ~

You may guess at this one!

Cash value of coins required
E What is the total cash value of these pennies?

In every case I have been working in tens of pennies ~ and have tried to emphasize a pattern to help you count them quickly ~ two lots of five ~ three lots of three and an extra one ~ or a triangular pattern [126986]. There was no help for the pile of pennies ~ but I did suggest you might guess ten.

Ten is a popular number ~ so much of our counting works in tens.

In every picture ~ below ~ there are either pennies ~ or ten-pence pieces ~ or one-pound coins. If there is a pile of coins there are always ten coins in the pile. The questions are lettered ~ there is no 'I' and no 'O'.
