Maths continuing with money and looking at V.A.T. or value added tax. We calculate this using our percentages. In our example we have a TV costing €150 and we need to calculate tax at 20%. So 20% is 1/5 to get 1/5 we divide by 5.150÷5= 30. So because it's a tax we add it back to our original price so 150+30=€180. Now try A and B. Remember 15%=3/20

Maths- Currency exchange. Simple rule here is if you're going on holiday(changing from Euro to another currency) you multiply by the exchange rate and if you're returning home (changing from another currency to Euro) you divide. The exchange rate is the value other currencies have in Euro. So if we look at the blue box at the top of P134 we see the Euro is worth 80p Sterling or 1.25 Us dollars. We can use our calculators for this. So looking at A no1- €10 to Sterling would be 10x0.80=£8(8 pounds sterling) Try A and B P 134
