Let us consider some of the word problems on addition of money. We have solved the problems in both the methods i.e., with conversion into paise and without conversion into paise.
Workedout examples on addition of money:
1. Add Rs. 27.75 and Rs. 40.08
Solution:
Method 1 (with conversion into paise):
Amounts to be added are converted into paise.
Rs. 27.75 = 2700 paise + 75 paise = 2775 paise
Rs. 40.08 = 4000 paise + 08 paise = 4008 paise
Now, sum
Rs. 27.75 = 2775 Paise
+ Rs. 40.08 = + 4008 Paise
6783 Paise
Therefore, sum of Rs. 27.75 and Rs. 40.08 = Rs. 67.83
Method 2 (without conversion into paise):
Here rupees and paise are arranged in different columns and then added like ordinary numbers.
Rs Paise
Rs. 27.75 = 27 75
+ Rs. 40.08 = + 40 08
67 83
Therefore, sum of Rs. 27.75 + Rs. 40.08 = Rs. 67.83
2. Add Rs. 125.65, Rs. 38.48 and Rs. 110.05
Solution:
Method 1 (with conversion into paise):
Amounts to be added are converted into paise.
Rs. 125.65 = 12500 paise + 65 paise = 12565 paise
Rs. 38.48 = 3800 paise + 48 paise = 3848 paise
Rs. 110.05 = 11000 paise + 05 paise = 11005 paise
Now, sum
Rs. 125.65 = 12565 Paise
Rs. 38.48 = 3848 Paise
+ Rs. 110.05 = + 11005 Paise
27418 Paise
Therefore, sum of 125.65, Rs. 38.48 and Rs. 110.05 = Rs. 274.18
Method 2 (without conversion into paise):
Here rupees and paise are arranged in different columns and then added like ordinary numbers.
Rs. Paise
125 65
38 48
+ 110 05
274 18
Therefore, sum of 125.65 + Rs. 38.48 + Rs. 110.05 = Rs. 274.18
3. If the cost of a cricket bat is Rs. 251.35 and that of badminton racket is Rs. 197.50. Find the total cost of both.
Solution:
Cost of a cricket bat Rs 251.35
Cost of badminton racket + Rs 197.50
Total cost of both Rs 448.85
4. If a story book costs Rs. 42.00 and a pen costs Rs. 10 less than the story book. Find the cost of both the items?

Total cost of both the items Rs 74.00
