Well, you know how many pounds to the dollar, and you know how many Euros to the dollar, so you should be able to convert pounds to Euros (or vice versa).

If $1 = .63 pounds and $1 is also worth .93 Euros, then .63 pounds = .93 Euros.

That gives you the equation

£0.63=€0.93

To find out how many Euros are equal to one pound, divide both sides by .63.

That gives you 1 pound =.93/.63 Euros

which comes out to 1 pound = 1.476 Euros.

So now you can convert your French price to pounds.  By taking the price in Euros and dividing it by the number of Euros in a pound.

Now all that's left is converting the US price. You know that $1 =£.63 and you know the car costs $25882. So you have to use the reciprocal of .63. You set that up like this:

$1/£.63=$25822/£x

That gets you £x=£.63($25822). Do the math and that tells you how many pounds the car costs in the US.

Given $1=&0.63 ................(1)and

$1=E 0.93.........................(2), where $ & and E sare taken as symbols for dollar ,poind and euros currency.

Form (1), we get how to convert dollar to pounds.

From (2) , we know how dollar could be converted to Euros.

To convert Euros into pounds:

Divding (1)/(2), we get : 1/1= & 0*63/E 0.93

Cross multiplying, we get: E 0.93 =& 0.63 or

E 1 = &(0.63/0.93)= 21/31=0.677419354..................(3) or

&1 =E(0.93/0.63)=31/21=1.476190476.....................(4)

Using (4) we get:

Britain currency  & 15000 = E 15000 (31/11)

=E 15000*31/21 = E22142.86

Using (3), we get:

France E 29490 = & 29490(21/31)=&19977.10

Using (1),

USA  $25882 = &(25882)(0.63)=&16305.66

Using (2)

USA $ 25882=E (25882(.93)= E 24070.26

We have to write all the prices in pounds;

Given: $1= £0.63 ... (1)

Also given: $1= €0.93 or €0.93 = $1

Therefore: €1 = $1/0.93

Substituting value of dollars in pounds from equation (1) in above equation we get:

€1 = £(1/0.93)*(0.63) = £0.63/0.93 ... (2)

Therefore value of Jaguar XJS in in France in pounds = (Value in euros)*(0.63/0.93)

= 29490*(0.63/0.93) = £19977.1 (approximately)

Therefore value of Jaguar XJS in in USA in pounds= (Value in dollars)*(0.63)

= 25882*0.63 = £16305.66
