# how to convert pence to pounds maths

2 + 1 = 3 and so £2 + £1 = £3. For example, here is a group of British coins, which we will add to find a total. We write the £2 coin as being worth 200 pence. When converting pounds into pence it is easiest to turn the pounds into hundreds of pence, and then add the pennies we had to start with: £5 and 60p = 500p and 60p = 500p + 60p = 560p, £3 and 85p = 300p and 85p = 300p + 85p = 385p. When converting pounds into pence it is easiest to turn the pounds into hundreds of pence, and then add the pennies we had to start with: £5 and 60p = 500p and 60p = 500p + 60p = 560p.

When turning pence into pounds, we should first split it in to hundred and “everything else”: 837p = 800p and 37p We will move the 50p and the three 20p coins over to the pounds column. Counting the pence coins, we have 50p + 20p + 10p, which equals a total of 80 pence. We can count money more easily by separating it into pounds and pence.

50p + 20p + 20p = 90p. Each group of 100 pence is worth 1 pound, which can be added to the pounds total. In total we have 2 pounds and 40 pence. 10 × 10p = 100p. We do not have any pound coins and so, we first look for groups of penny coins that add to make 100 pence. • About Us    We cannot make 100 pence exactly so we look for a value that makes at least 100 pence.
