2,500 ÷ 100 = £25. When multiplying by 100, just move the decimal point two places to the right BUT when dividing by 100, just move the decimal point two places to the left

If you quadruple something, you multiply it by 4


52 × £2 = £104 because there are 52 weeks in a calendar year

£17,898.99  £1,500 = £16,398.99. A 'discount' is a reduction in price or cost


Profit = Selling Price  Cost Price = £9.99  £1.99 = £8.00. If the profit is a negative number, then you have made a loss

There are twenty 5 p coins in £1 ∴ in £220 there are 220 × 20 = 4,400


If you treble something, you multiply it by 3

525 ÷ 25 = 21. You have to divide 525 by 25 because you want to find out how many 'lots' of 25 there are in 525: each 'lot' equals the cost of 1 item: this is the same as adding 'lots' of 25 to itself until you get to 525. This means that four items cost 21 × 4 = £84


12,500 ÷ 20 = 625

If you get short changed, it means that you have been given less change than you should have been given. So, £20  £6.33 = £13.67 which is £1.00 more than the cost of the pen ∴ he was short changed by £1.00. ALTERNATIVELY, £12.67 + £6.33 = £19.00 which is £1.00 less than £20.00 ∴ he was short changed by £1.00
