A piece of land with an area of .5 square kilometers is priced at $5700 Canadian. If there are 1.269 Canadian dollars per (US) dollar, then what is the price in dollars per square mile?
x US/5700 CND = 1/1.269
x = 5700/1.269 = 4491.73
better update your textbook, the two currencies since the Bush era have been roughly at par
(today $1.00 US = 1.03 CND)
