Convert 325 pence to pounds.
00:00:07.120 --> 00:00:09.520
There are 100 pence in one pound.
00:00:10.600 --> 00:00:18.760
This means that the easiest way to convert 325 pence to pounds is to divide 325 by 100.
00:00:20.320 --> 00:00:25.000
When dividing by 100, each digit moves two places to the right.
00:00:26.240 --> 00:00:30.000
Three hundreds become three ones or three units.
00:00:31.520 --> 00:00:33.840
Two tens become two tenths.
00:00:35.320 --> 00:00:40.280
And finally, the five units or five ones become five hundredths.
00:00:41.720 --> 00:00:47.400
This means that 325 divided by 100 is 3.25.
00:00:48.720 --> 00:00:56.840
In other words, 325 pence is the same as three pounds and 25 pence or three pounds 25.
00:00:58.560 --> 00:01:03.280
You might also have been taught to bounce the decimal point two places to the left.
00:01:03.560 --> 00:01:06.720
When we divide by 100, we bounce it two places.
00:01:07.240 --> 00:01:10.880
This again gives us the answer 3.25.
