Notes

  • Wherever possible the same paragraphs have been maintained except in some very long ones where it helped comprehension by breaking it in to smaller parts
  • All fractions have been converted to decimal so they are presented more clearly on the screen
  • The '£' symbol has been used before the amount rather than the italicised 'l' placed afterwards
