An international guest tenders \$171 in U.S. funds and #2,000 from his native land to settle an outstanding account of \$206.20. #s are being purchased by the hotel for 51.50 per U.S. dollar. What must the cashier do now to settle the account?

You are not allowed to ask multiple questions in a single post. The question has been edited to comply with the same.

The international guest pays \$171 in U.S. currency and #2000 in the currency of the nation from where he has arrived. The total amount outstanding in the guest's account is \$206.20.

As the exchange rate of the guest's home currency is #51.5 per USD, #2000 is equivalent to 2000/51.5 = \$38.83. The total amount paid by the guest is equal to 171 + 38.83 = \$209.83 This is greater than what the guest is required to make a payment of.

The cashier should return \$209.83 - \$206.2 = \$3.63 to the guest to settle the account.
