# 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!

Two lines of coins ~ **A** How many coins?

#### If you are writing answers down then you can use the letters **A~B~C~**...to keep track of things.

Some patterns ~ **B** How many coins altogether?

An interesting pattern ~ **C** How many coins?

A pile of pennies ~

**D** How many coins? ~

It is difficult to count from the picture ~

You may guess at this one!

**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'.

**What is the monetary value of the coins in each picture?**

**F** The value of all these pennies is?

**G** More pennies ~ value is?

**H** Mixed pence and ten-pence coins ~ value?

**J** What is the total value?

**K** Not a well balanced pile of pennies ~

The cost in this picture is?

**L** A pile of ten-pence pieces and a valuable coin

How much is this picture worth?

**M** What value is shown here?

**N** Quite a lot of cash ~

What is the total worth?

**P** What is the value shown?
