Money - Read

Introduction

Money is made up of a selection of metal coins and paper notes. We either spend money or save it up.

When we spend money we exchange it for goods, like sweets, toys, books, computer games, or services, like a swimming pass, cinema ticket or bus ride.

Spending money decreases the amount of money we have, and saving money increases the amount.

You will need to understand how decimal points work when you solve money problems.
