Travel Hack X for Maths Dummy: Quick Currency Conversion

being a Maths dummy

i am not sure if

it’s a good idea to write this

 

but i found that this standard method

works for me for the past

few travel and online shopping

 

or maybe i shouldn’t have written as all

as everyone except me

has known this a long time ago

 

which involves

A: Base currency, any

B: Foreign Currency, any

C: A fixed multiplier

 

Google for the basic conversion of

1 (foreign currency) into your (base currency)

then you will get a (fixed multiplier)

 

any amount in (foreign currency) X (fixed multiplier)

= equivalent value in (base currency)

 

Eg:

1 GBP into MYR

the multiplier is 5.16 (as of 10/8/16)

 

take any value in GBP

and multiple it by 5.16

to get the equivalent value in MYR

 

1 Yen into USD

the multiplier is  0.0097 (as of 10/8/16)

 

take any value in Yen

and multiple it by 0.0097

to get the equivalent value in MYR

 

1 RMB into SGD

the multiplier is 0.21

 

take any value in RMB

and multiple it by 0.21

to get the equivalent value in SGD
