Ajay has four friends, Ben, Kemi, Sam, and Sita. He gives 10 pence to each friend. How much money does he give altogether?

Let’s listen to the question one more time. Ajay has four friends, Ben, Kemi, Sam, and Sita. He gives 10 pence to each friend. How much money does he give altogether? We know that Ajay gives 10 pence to each of his four friends. We need to work out how much money he gave away altogether. To help us work out the answer, we could count in 10s. Ajay has four friends. And he gave away four 10 pences. So we need to count forward in 10s four times, 10, 20, 30, 40. Four lots of 10 is 40.

Ajay gave away 40 pence altogether.
