sound clip for 66,50 £ £ 66.50 confusing

In the examples for currency placed after price, the first sound is a bit confusing to me.  It sounds like soixante-six __________ cinquante lbs.  I can't figure out what word she is saying in between 66 and 50 pounds?  Merci.

Hi Robin ,

Just listened to it, it says:

Soixante six livres (£66) et cinquante pence.(50p)...

Hope this helps!

That answers my exact question but created a second question.  I don't think that livre and pence were mentioned in the lesson.  Also livre and pence were not used in other examples.  So that is confusing for someone like me not familiar with livres and / or pence.  Merci.
