Which of the following represents 50 piastres?
00:00:08.737 --> 00:00:12.457
In this question, we’re shown four different groups of coins.
00:00:13.447 --> 00:00:23.057
We have to find the total value of each group of coins and select the group which represents 50 piastres.
00:00:24.127 --> 00:00:27.717
Let’s add together the value of the two coins in the first group.
00:00:28.817 --> 00:00:31.267
We could use this part–whole model to help.
00:00:32.337 --> 00:00:49.557
If the total amount of piastres we’re trying to make is 50 and our first coin is worth 50 piastres, it can’t be this group of coins because our second coin is worth 25 piastres.
00:00:50.287 --> 00:00:54.927
50 plus 25 gives us more than 50.
00:00:55.487 --> 00:00:58.667
50 and 25 is 75.
00:00:59.857 --> 00:01:10.747
It can’t be this group of coins either because 50 plus 25 plus 25 is greater than 50.
00:01:12.267 --> 00:01:19.717
We can’t use two 50-piastre coins to make 50 piastres because double 50 is 100.
00:01:20.457 --> 00:01:23.087
So it must be our final group of coins.
00:01:23.977 --> 00:01:26.577
There are two 25-piastre coins.
00:01:27.687 --> 00:01:34.097
25 doubled or 25 plus 25 does equal 50.
00:01:35.617 --> 00:01:39.817
This is the group of coins which represents 50 piastres.
00:01:40.397 --> 00:01:44.127
25 plus 25 equals 50.
