Okay might be a studpid question, but I am asking anyway:

the question goes like:
A US dollar costs 7.5 Norweigian kr, but at the same dollar can be purchased for 1.25 Swiss francs. What is the Norweigian Kr/Swiss franc exchange?

FĂ¸rst to calculate what 1 Norweigian kr is in dollare so-->(1kr*\$1)/7.5kr=\$0.13333

And then do the same for Swiss francs--> (1Swiss francs*\$1)/ 1.25= \$0.8

and then the Norweigian kr/Swiss franc rate is: (0.8\$/swiss franc)/(0.1333\$/kr)=6 Norweigian kr/Swiss franc???

Don't give me the answer just tell me if I am totally lost and help me a bit!!

I have one more question:

Okay here:

In Munich a bratwurst costs 5 euros: a hot dog costs \$4 at Bosten's Fenway park: at en exchange rate of \$1.50/per euro, what is the price of a brustwurst in terms of hot dogs?

First --> How many dollards does it cost to buy a Brustwurst?
(1.50\$/Euro)* 5 euro= \$7.5

so (\$7.5 per brustwurst)/(\$ per hot dog)= 1, 875 hot dog pr brustwurst?

righ or?

Id say you are right in both questions
