At a certain point in time the South African rand (R) is converted to the American dollar (\$) at a rate of  \$1.00=R 6.50. If an article costs \$15 in the USA, what is the number of articles that can be bought for R2 535?

Best answer
If \$1 = R 6.50

Then \$15 = R 97.50 which implies that each article cost R 97.50 in rands.

Therefore number of articles that can be bought for R 2535 is

 Number of articles = Total sum in available in rands / Cost of each article in rands

                               \[=  \dfrac{R 2535 }{R 97.50}\]

                               =  $26$ articles
