With the impact of globalisation, businesses and countries are more intertwined than ever before! British companies may use Chinese suppliers for their raw materials and Chinese manufactures may buy oil in dollars to run their factories. With the growth of trade and multiple currencies being exchanged between nations, calculating the exchange rate of currencies is a must in the modern global economy. In this lesson, you will learn how to make currency conversions which will be both beneficial in the real world and for those taking GCSE examinations.
