I'm not so good at math so I didn't even attempt this one. Good job

good job! u shouldnt have done the hint tho it would have made it more fun bc i no all that british money stuff from a book i read

for one thing i have no clue how the money works in the UK so i didnt even try it!!

Me either!

I guessed that would probably be the case but I thought I'd redress the balance a little.

there are loads of teasers using US $$ (which mean nothing to me)

so at least 1 UK Â£Â£ wouldn't hurt :doubt

you missed the smallest combination of 10 L.

EASY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I didn't get it =(

Math and I seem to be enemies in teasers! Still, enjoyed reading it and thinking a bit before gave up! Got me on this one!

how much is a f or whatever worth in dollars?

Currently UKÂ£1 is worth about US$1.60.

Good to see an international problem here. No reason why there should be an assumption that everyone understands a particular nations currency.
