Because money uses decimal values.The stock market used to divide the price of a share into by half, fourth, eighth, sixteenth of a dollar (or pound, presumably). A fourth of a dollar is 25 cents, but an eighth is 12 and a half cents. Since we never make a purchase of a half of a cent, it was logical to use round cents.

20 (240 /4 =60, /2 = 30, x 2/3 = 20)

half a dollar

A half banknote is not negotiable; I recommend that you find the other half and tape it back together.

Half of an American billion is 500,000,000 (500 million). Half of a British billion is 500,000,000,000 (500 thousand million).
