00:00:01.686 --> 00:00:04.286
Daniel is trying to count the money he has.
00:00:05.116 --> 00:00:07.456
I have 10 pounds and 52 pence.
00:00:08.616 --> 00:00:10.206
Is Daniel correct?
00:00:11.166 --> 00:00:13.956
In the picture, we can see the group of coins that Daniel’s got.
00:00:14.676 --> 00:00:20.356
And did you notice the way that Daniel describes his coins is by using two units of measurement?
00:00:21.116 --> 00:00:24.206
This symbol represents the number of pounds that there are.
00:00:24.346 --> 00:00:27.066
And Daniel says that he has 10 pounds.
00:00:27.566 --> 00:00:30.076
And we can also see the letter p, which stands for pence.
00:00:30.076 --> 00:00:34.496
So Daniel has 10 pounds and 52 pence, or does he?
00:00:34.866 --> 00:00:37.066
Because we’re asked, is he correct?
00:00:37.466 --> 00:00:41.016
The only way to find out the answer is for us to count the coins for ourselves.
00:00:41.546 --> 00:00:44.276
Let’s start by adding up the number of pounds that he has.
00:00:45.166 --> 00:00:48.986
Which coins can we find that have a value in pounds?
00:00:49.476 --> 00:00:55.816
Well, it’s quite small on this video, but if we look really closely we can see the words “two pounds” on this particular coin.
00:00:56.176 --> 00:00:59.076
We know that it’s a two-pound coin because it’s circular.
00:00:59.696 --> 00:01:03.946
And the color of the coin is silver in the middle with a sort of gold color around the outside.
00:01:04.556 --> 00:01:07.056
And there’s another type of coin that has these colors.
00:01:07.686 --> 00:01:08.746
But this one’s a bit smaller.
00:01:08.746 --> 00:01:09.796
And it’s not a circle.
00:01:09.796 --> 00:01:11.626
It has sort of rounded edges to it.
00:01:11.786 --> 00:01:13.406
And this is a one-pound coin.
00:01:13.806 --> 00:01:17.376
And again, if we look really closely, we can see the words “one pound” on this coin.
00:01:18.016 --> 00:01:22.826
So in Daniel’s pile of coins, we can see some are worth two pounds and some are worth one pound.
00:01:23.626 --> 00:01:25.456
Let’s begin by counting the pounds then.
00:01:26.316 --> 00:01:28.836
To begin with, there are four two-pound coins.
00:01:29.286 --> 00:01:36.106
So these have a value of two, four, six, eight pounds.
00:01:36.896 --> 00:01:39.666
And then we need to add our three one-pound coins.
00:01:40.296 --> 00:01:46.316
So if we start from eight, that’s nine, 10, 11.
00:01:46.716 --> 00:01:50.326
The number of pounds that Daniel has is 11 pounds.
00:01:50.936 --> 00:01:55.226
And we can see that he tells us he thinks that he has 10 pounds and 52 pence.
00:01:55.936 --> 00:01:57.776
So it looks like Daniel’s wrong, doesn’t it?
00:01:58.066 --> 00:02:00.396
Let’s count the number of pence just to finish off.
00:02:01.116 --> 00:02:07.886
The remaining coins are a 50-pence coin and then these two coins here, which we know are worth two pence each.
00:02:08.726 --> 00:02:18.036
So if you start with the coin with the largest value, that’s 50, and then add two twos, that takes us to 52 and then 54.
00:02:18.696 --> 00:02:22.646
The number of pence that Daniel has is 54 pence.
00:02:23.466 --> 00:02:29.706
Instead of 10 pounds and 52 pence, Daniel has 11 pounds and 54 pence.
00:02:30.496 --> 00:02:33.496
We counted the pounds and the pence separately to find our answer.
00:02:34.486 --> 00:02:35.786
Is Daniel correct?
00:02:36.706 --> 00:02:38.056
No, he’s not.
