00:00:00.000 --> 00:00:05.680
2
00:00:05.680 --> 00:00:08.029
This question is all
about Bert's expenditure.
3
00:00:08.029 --> 00:00:10.190
But it is made more
difficult because
4
00:00:10.190 --> 00:00:13.900
of the units that are used.
5
00:00:13.900 --> 00:00:20.210
Each week Bert spends
on beer 6 times 4 pence.
6
00:00:20.210 --> 00:00:23.220
Here, D stands for pence.
7
00:00:23.220 --> 00:00:27.180
So he spends 24
pence a week on beer.
8
00:00:27.180 --> 00:00:29.585
This is equal to 2
shillings, as there
9
00:00:29.585 --> 00:00:32.670
are 12 pence in a shilling.
10
00:00:32.670 --> 00:00:38.070
For his bus pass, he spends
two shillings and sixpence.
11
00:00:38.070 --> 00:00:42.581
And for his rent, he
pays 30 shillings.
12
00:00:42.581 --> 00:00:44.580
You can see that the way
that these numbers have
13
00:00:44.580 --> 00:00:48.740
been ordered, to allow us
to add them up more easily.
14
00:00:48.740 --> 00:00:51.850
So, if we add these
together, the total amount
15
00:00:51.850 --> 00:00:54.820
of expenditure that
Bert has in a week
16
00:00:54.820 --> 00:00:56.530
is 34 shillings and six pence.
17
00:00:56.530 --> 00:01:01.880
18
00:01:01.880 --> 00:01:06.220
So now we can work out how many
loaves of bread Bert can buy.
19
00:01:06.220 --> 00:01:13.220
Bert's wages are one pound, 18
shillings, and sixpence a week.
20
00:01:13.220 --> 00:01:17.060
Because his expenditure was
in terms of shillings only,
21
00:01:17.060 --> 00:01:20.700
it's worth converting this
into shillings and pence.
22
00:01:20.700 --> 00:01:23.460
This is 38 shillings
and sixpence,
23
00:01:23.460 --> 00:01:28.240
as there are 20
shillings in a pound.
24
00:01:28.240 --> 00:01:31.000
So, Bert's expenditure,
If you remember,
25
00:01:31.000 --> 00:01:34.060
was 34 shillings and sixpence.
26
00:01:34.060 --> 00:01:36.230
If we subtract one
from the other,
27
00:01:36.230 --> 00:01:39.750
we have four
shillings remaining.
28
00:01:39.750 --> 00:01:43.782
Now, the cost of bread
is three pence per loaf
29
00:01:43.782 --> 00:01:47.560
and Bert has four
lots of 12 pence,
30
00:01:47.560 --> 00:01:49.920
because there's 12 pence
in a shilling, which
31
00:01:49.920 --> 00:01:53.200
is 48 pence remaining.
32
00:01:53.200 --> 00:01:57.800
So, if we divide 48 by three,
which is the price of a loaf,
33
00:01:57.800 --> 00:02:00.890
Bert can buy 16 loaves.
34
00:02:00.890 --> 00:02:01.834
