Hey everyone,

I was reading this math question in this book of mine and it just doesn't make any sense to me, tell me if the answer makes any sense to you:

"Working with an old monetary system that used Pounds, shillings, and pence and there are 20 shillings to a pound, and 12 pence to a shilling...how much would 5 pounds, 2 shillings, and 8 pence come out to in the newer system that uses only pounds and pence (where 100 pence equals a pound like the penny to the US dollar)"

The answer given in the book is 5.13 pounds in the new system, which I didnt even come close to getting...

I multuiplied 5 pounds times 20 shillings and then tacked on the extra 2 shillings and multiplied that by 12 pence to get the total amount of pence, which I divided by 100 to get pounds and pence...tell me what you guys get...
