convert money (practice)

posted by .

In 2005 admission to the Bronx zoo was $6 for a child and admission to the toronto zoo was 11 candian dollars. Using the exchange rate of 1.2403 candian dollars per U.s dollar which zoo's admission costs more in U.S dollars.
I think its Bronx Zoo.

    11/1.2403 = 8.868822

    The Toronto Zoo costs $8.87

    Here is a conversion site:

    Knowing then that $1 USD (U.S. dollar) is equal to -.950473 CAD (Canadian dollar), if you multiply $6 times that it will be 5.702778. Therefore you are correct in that the Bronx Zoo costs more!
