#### Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we will be converting different currencies using their exchange rates.

We will use a calculator for this activity!

As we are aware, we use the £ in the UK.

If we want to travel to another country then we have to use their particular currency.

For example, the USA use dollars (\$), Australia use Australian dollars (AUS \$) and Europe use the euro (€).

If we want to exchange our £ for another currency then there is an exchange rate.

Example

Convert £500 to euros.

The exchange rate is £1 = €1.15

This means that for every £ we have, we get 1.15 euros.

If we have £500, then we multiply by the exchange rate:

500 x 1.15 = €575

This works the other way too!

If we want to convert another currency back to £'s.

Example

Convert \$300 to £'s

The exchange rate is £1 = \$1.30

If we have \$300, then we divide by the exchange rate:

300 ÷ 1.30 = £230.77

Let's try some questions and problems!
