We have disussed money and coins a bit today, and now it is time to do some math. See if you can use the information below to answer the questions at the bottom of this post! Good luck!

**Coins Used in Tudor England:**

*(one pence is the same as one penny)*

**one sovereign** = one pound

**one pound** = twenty shillings

**one angel** = ten shillings

**one crown** = five shillings

**one half-crown** = two shillings and six pence

**one shilling **= twelve pence

**one sixpence** = six pence

**one groat** = four pence

**halfgroat **= two pence

**threefarthing** = 3/4 of a pence

**one farthing** = 1/4 pence

I am a servant headed to market to buy bread. My mistress has given me a halfgroat. If the bread costs two pence (2p), do I have enough money?

How much bread can I buy for one shilling?

I have six halfgroat coins. What coin can I exchange them all for?
