Start at 50p and count on 20p …

So 50+ 20 = 70

Total cost is 70p

Count back from 100p to 70p…

90, 80, 70 = 30

So there is 30p change !

STEP 4 Calculate It !

You can subtract 68p from £1 in lots of different ways:

- Count on from 72p up to 80p then to £1

or £1 – 60p – 8p

or £1 – 8p – 60p

or £1 – 70p + 2p (Easier. Why?)

Let’s try one out …

Count back from £1 by 70p

instead of 68p: …

90p…80p…70p…60p…50p…40p…30p

2p too much!

So count back by 2p …

Paul gets 32p change

£1.32 – 4p – 50p

£1.32 – 52p – 2p (Easier. Why?)

£1.32 – 2p – 50p – 2p (Even easier! Why?)

Take a look …

Count back from £1.32 by 2p to the 1st friendly number: £1.30

Then count back by 50p …

£1.20 … £1.10 … £1 … 90p … 80p

Then count back by 2p more … 78p

You can work out 6 x 19 in lots of different ways:

6 x 19 - but only if you know your 19 times tables!

6 x 10 + 6 x 9 - if you like to use partition

3 x 38 - if you like to double and halve

You can work out 64 ÷ 4 in lots of different ways:

64 ÷ 2 ÷ 2 - halve it and halve again

32 ÷ 2- if you halve both numbers to start with

Take a look …

PARTITION

Partition 64 into 60 and 4 …

60 ÷ 4 = 15

4 ÷ 4 = 1 +

16

Each egg roll costs 16p

64 ÷ 4 CHUNKING

How many 4’s in 64? To find out, you can keep subtracting 4’s until you reach 0.

You can subtract in chunks to make it easy:

For example,

You know 10 x 4 = 40.

So subtract 4 lots of 10 (40). Keep subtracting …

The School Canteen Example 6start with: 64

10 x 4 - 40Take away 10 lots of 4

Leaving 24

5 x 4 - 20Take away another 5 lots of 4

Leaving 4
