# Maths Question help for interview watch

1. Hiya, Hope you guys don't mind me asking here! I'm currently in the process of interviewing for a job at HMRC and there are Maths/English tests. I was told by a friend there would be questions on Money exchange. I'm so stumped on how to work things out. I'm OK at maths, not great. If for example, 100 Euros is 124.68 dollars and 156.61 Australian Dollars, what is $40 US dollars in Australian Dollars? How would I go about working that out? Sorry if this is really simple! 2.

It is really simple lol. But anyway, forget Euros since that is irrelevant for answering the question. You know that so multiply both sides by and you're done.
3. 124.68 US Dollars = 56.61 Australian Dollars

40 US dollars = ? Australian Dollars

First find what 1 US dollar = ?? Australian Dollars then *40 to get 40 US dollars = ? Australian Dollars

From USD to AUD:

40*(156.61)/(124.68)=50.24
5. Only a Green party supporter would need help to answer that. Oh wait...
6. Actually a member of Labour!

I was given that question (including the EURO's) as an example, which threw me off a little bit, as it looked irrelevant.

Not simple for all of us, thanks all the same.
