While vacationing,john has dinner at a restaurant in Japan and his tab
comes to 3,428 yen. The exchange rate at the time of his visit is 1 yen = 1.25
cents. What was the cost of the meal in US dollars??

    1 yen = 1.25 cents.
    100 yens = 125 cents = 1.25$
    So 3428 yens = 3428/1.25 $

    Is this the final answer? Or do i need to divide 3428 by 1.25$ to get the final answer?

    $3428/1.25 is the same as
    $3428÷1.25
    Yes, you will have to take the calculator and do the division to get the final answer.
    Feel free to post the final answer for verification if you wish.

    I came up with $ 2,742.4

    I apologize that I was completely off.

    Let's start over.

    1 yen equals 1.25 cents = $0.0125

    so by direct proportion:

    1 yen : $0.0125
    3428 yens : $X

    so by cross multiplication:
    $X = $0.0125*3428yens/1 yen
    = $42.85
