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!















First, find out how much each child earned by dividing the total amount of money (£9) by the number of children (3): 9 ÷ 3 = 3
Next, find out how much each child earned per mile by dividing the amount earned (£3) by the number of miles (10): 3 ÷ 10 = 0.3 Remember that, when dealing with money, decimals should be given to 2 decimal places: 0.3 = £0.30 or 30 pence 

For this problem we must use multiplication and addition. First work out how much she got for each grade:
As = 3 x 5 = 15 Bs = 5 x 2.5 = 12.5 Cs = 3 x 1 = 3 Next we have to add these three amounts together: 15 + 12.5 + 3 = 30.5 Remember that, when dealing with money, decimals should be given to 2 decimal places: 30.5 = £30.50 
First, we need to work out how much money Emma has taken (convert pence into pounds):
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 

A simple subtraction will solve this one: 1,934 – 1,246 = 688

To solve this problem, work out the cost of each item:
Hotel = 64.57 x 2 = 129.14 Show = 49.99 x 2 = 99.98 Next we add these together: 129.14 + 99.98 = 229.12. Alice’s break has cost her £229.12 

The question asks ho many coins they have, not how much they are worth.
First, convert £7.84 and £5.73 into pence by multiplying by 100: 7.84 x 100 = 784 573 x 100 = 573 Now it’s just a question of adding the two amounts together: 573 + 784 = 1,357 
Multiply the number of goals scored by 1,000 and the number of goals conceded (let in) by 300:
Scored = 3 x 1,000 = 3,000 Conceded = 2 x 300 = 600 Now we just subtract the 600 from 3,000 to find out how much Barry will be paid: 3,000 – 600 = 2,400 

First work out how much money Maurice has spent:
Chocolate = 0.4 x 8 = 3.2 Drinks = 0.8 x 2 = 1.6 Now we add these two amounts together: 3.2 + 1.6 = 4.8 Finally, we subtract the amount Maurice has spent from the £10 he paid with: 10 – 4.8 = 5.2 Remember that, when dealing with money, decimals should be given to 2 decimal places: 5.2 = £5.20 
There are 50 2p coins in £1 because 100 ÷ 2 = 50
To work out how many 2p coins there are in £352 we multiply 352 by 50: 352 x 50 = 17,600 
Next, subtract 19.8 from 20 to find out how much change Max is owed: 20 – 19.8 = 0.2
Remember that, when dealing with money, decimals should be given to 2 decimal places: 0.2 = £0.20 or 20 pence
