Click on the coins to make the total which matches the price of the item. If you exceed the
total, you can click try again to clear the amount. This game goes up to a maximum
price of 20p, but you can click here for a game which goes up to 50p. It doesn't matter which coins you
choose, so you could pay for a 17p item by clicking the 1p 17 times, which makes the game
suitable for different abilities. (ICTGames)
