Calculating Cat has set Digit Dog a challenge. She has put five coins in her purse and is asking Digit Dog to work out how much money she might have.
Use coins to investigate which coins could be in the purse.
Write down the different ways you have found.
Digit Dog thinks there could be 6p in the purse. Which 5 coins would you need to make 6p?
Can you work systematically so that you know you have found all the different combinations?
………there was a different number of coins in the purse? What amounts could you make then?
