U.S. dollars are legal currency only in the United States. International investment, travel, and trade require that dollars be exchanged for foreign currency. In todayâ€™s global economy, a floating exchange rate system is used to value major currencies compared to each other. Because the values of these currencies vary continually, exchange rate tables are published daily by numerous business sources. The information below is taken from one such exchange-rate table.

**To calculate:** The number of pound in the US dollar provided as 2,500 round it off to nearest pound when you are on a trip in London and you need to exchange the 25,00 US dollars for British pound.

Explanation

**Given Information:**

The table for the exchange rate provided as

The amount of the dollar is provided as 2500.

**Formula used:**

To calculate total cost per potted plant, follow the steps shown below:

Step 1: Find the currency exchange rate at the intersection of column of old currency and the new currency.

Step 2: Multiply the exchange rate to the old currency.

Step 3: Round off to the nearest dollar find out the value at the unit place.

Step 4: Compare the digit next to the unit place to the 5, if the value is greater than or equals to 5 than increment it by one, otherwise, just remove the number next to it and leave it as it is.

**Calculation:**

Consider the table for the exchange rate provided as

Currency exchange rate | |||||||

Country-Currency | Dollar | Euro | Pound | SFranc | Peso | Yen | CdnDlr |

Canada-Dollar | 1 |
