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!
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 . 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?
