Key Info
  • Counting and adding the takings from a café
  • Duration: 02:44
  • How to count up and add the takings from a café by sorting notes and coins into multiples of £1. To make the adding up process easier the presenter counts coins and notes of different values separately. For example, pennies are stacked into piles of ten making 10p. Ten of these stacks add up to £1. The process is repeated with the other coins to make more £1 stacks. Next the notes are separated and counted. Eventually any spare coins are added to make up pounds and the total is added together.
