Welcome to the second quiz in our Very Easy section of Eleven Plus maths, dealing with Solving Problems which involve money. If you haven’t already played the first one, then go back and give it a try.
Even if you find maths boring, it’s important that you practice solving money problems. When you have to buy or sell, now and in your adult life, you don’t want to be short changed! You need to know exactly how much something will cost you and how much change you are owed – otherwise, your money won’t last very long at all!
Have a go at these questions to see how you fare. Keep playing until you can get all ten of them right first time. Once you’ve completed this quiz, move on to the next one. You’ll soon be a master of money problems!
20p = 0.2 x 2 = 0.4
50p = 0.5 x 3 = 1.5
Next we add these amounts: 0.4 + 1.5 = 1.9
Finally, we subtract the amount Emma took (1.9) from Ivan’s initial amount (21.18):
21.18 – 1.9 = 19.28
