The boy goes fishing every day for a week. On the first morning he catches three fish.

Extra Challenges:

The boy has a basket full of 24 fish. He sells each fish for 50p. How much money does he make?


He decides to offer a deal- anybody who purchases two fish gets a third one half price. He sells all 24 fish using the deal. How much money does he make?
