Lewis the Lion was very happy when he arrived in Bolivia because for the first time during his travels in South America, the currency (Bolivianos) was really easy to convert into pounds and pence. You simply had to divide by 10. So, as long as you knew about place value, it was easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy!
1 Boliviano = 10 pence
10 Bolivianos = £1
100 Bolivianos = £10 and so on.
Here are two photos of Lewis with some Bolivian notes and coins:

Can you set your friends some challenges to convert Bolivianos into pounds and pence or vice-versa, to convert pounds and pence into Bolivianos?
