Un peu de vs peu de for argent

Hi

There was a test in which i use peu d'argent but the answer was shown to be un peu de

I cant understand why?

In the lesson it is said peu d'argent

Could you kindly clarify this for me?

Thanks

Hi Maryam, 

The difference is significant as 

J'ai un peu d'argent = I have a little (bit of) money 

J'ai peu d'argent = I have little money ( meaning not much at all) 

So beware!

so the lesson should be corrected to reflect the test answer, J'ai un peu d'argent (not -- J'ai peu d'argent)

also, it the lesson states (un) peu de --- used for uncountability.  Well, money is VERY countable.
