matt and ruba each have one coin.
The total amount of money is less than 50p.
work out the probability that exactly one of the coins is a 10p piece.
assume that all possible coins are equally likely.

Chloe,
please help

MATHS 
Hailey,
what's p?
do the coins come in 1p by 1p or 10p by 10p? Not too sure about the coin system. 
MATHS 
chloe,
the 50p is a 50p piece it says in the book it is less than 50p (money)

MATHS 
Hailey,
sorry...... no idea. I mean it could be 49p, 49.99p, 49.999999p...?
Do they come in whole numbers or what.
