National Grid shares

Posted 5th Feb
I'm confused by share prices, how much is 242 shares in National Grid worth.
I make it £244, 371.60 but my friend who has the shares says they are worth £24, 437.16 and someone else says only £2, 443.
Can anybody enlighten us please?

Stocks are usually advertised in pence not pounds so they are worth about £10 each
1 share is currently worth £10.20 so 242 is around £2468.40. There will be some additional decimal places to the right of the pence that will push this up a bit, and depending on whether you are buying or selling, and the rate at which the broker uses, you may not see the full value.
Current share price: 1,021.00 pence
Number of shares: 242

242 x 1,021.00 pence = 247,082 pence = £2,470.82
