- "A neighbor of mine purchased a certain quantity of Beef at two shillings a pound, and the same quantity of Sausages at eighteen pence a pound."
- "Stan pointed to her that if she had divided the same money equally between Beefs and Sausages, she would have gained two pounds in total weight."
12 pence = 1 shilling
20 shillings = 1 Pound Stirling
