Recognizing and Counting Money: Pounds

In this video, we’re going to learn how to recognize the value of notes and coins used in Egypt and how to count a group of notes and coins. These are the different pound notes used in Egypt. The front of each note is written in Arabic, and the back of each note is written in English. The first note is worth five Egyptian pounds. We can see the number five on the back of this note, and five pounds is also written in words. Our second note is worth 10 pounds. This is a 20-pound note. Our next note is a 50-pound note. It’s worth 50 pounds. This note is worth 100 pounds. Egypt also has a 200-pound note. Not all of the pounds in Egypt are notes. We also have a one-pound coin.

Now that we’ve learned about some of the notes and coins used in Egypt, let’s think about how to count an amount of money. To count how many pounds are shown, we need to add together the value of all the notes and all the coins. One way we could count the total amount of money is to start with the note with the highest value. Which of the notes and coins has the highest value? Our first note is worth 20 pounds. Our second note is worth five pounds. And each of our coins is worth one pound. So the note with the highest value is the 20-pound note.

We could use this number line to count the total number of pounds. We start with the note worth the most, which is our 20-pound note. And we can count forward 20. Next, we can add our five-pound note. Now we have 25 pounds. And next we can add our three one-pound coins: 26, 27, 28. The total amount of money shown is 28 pounds. We used our number line to count forward 20, five, and three lots of one. Now that we’ve learned how to recognize Egyptian notes and coins and how to count an amount of notes and coins, let’s try answering some questions.

Choose the five-pound note.

In this question. We have to select the note which is worth five pounds, and we’re given four different notes to choose from. Our first note has the number 10 written on it, so we know this note is worth 10 pounds. Our second note has the number 50 written on it. This note is worth 50 pounds. Our third note is worth 20 pounds. So the last note must be worth five pounds. Does it have a number five written on it? Yes, it does. This is the five-pound note.

Count the amount of money.

We’re shown three different Egyptian notes. We have to work out the value of each note and add them together to find the total amount of money shown. Our first note has the number 10 written on it. It also says 10 pounds in words. This is a 10-pound note. We’ve got a 20-pound note and a five-pound note. We could add the value of these notes using our number line. Let’s start with the note which has the highest value. Which is worth more, a 10-pound note, a 20-pound note, or a five-pound note? We know that 20 is worth more than 10, and 20 is worth more than five. Let’s start by counting forward 20.

Our 10-pound note is now the note with the highest value because 10 is worth more than five. Now we can add our 10-pound note. What’s 10 more than 20? It’s 30. So far, we’ve counted 30 pounds. Now we just need to add our five-pound note. Five more than 30 is 35. The total amount of money shown is 35 pounds.

Count the amount of money shown.

In this question, we’ve been shown four different notes. We have to work out the value of each note and then add them together to find the total amount of money shown. Our first note is worth 50 pounds, so we could count forward 50 from zero on our number line. So far, we’ve got 50 pounds. Our next note is worth 20 pounds, so we need to count forward 20 from 50 on our number line. 50 add 20 is 70. Our next note is worth 10 pounds, so we need to count forward 10 more from 70: 70, 80. The last of our notes is worth five pounds. Five more than 80 is 85. The total amount of money shown is 85 pounds.

How many pounds are shown?

To find the total amount of pounds, first, we need to look at each of the notes and work out their value. Our first note is worth 20 pounds, and our second note is worth 50 pounds. We need to add together 50 pounds and 20 pounds. 50 plus 20 equals 70. 70 pounds are shown. We worked out the value of each note and then added them together. 50 pounds plus 20 pounds equals 70 pounds.

What have we learned in this video? We’ve learned how to recognize Egyptian pound coins. We’ve also learned how to recognize Egyptian pound notes, and we also learned how to add a group of coins and notes to find the total value.
