â€‹A commercial bank buys and sells Japanese Yen in Kenya Shillings at the rates shown below.7/1/2024 COMMERCIAL ARITHMETIC I  KCSE 1997  FORM 1 LEVEL  PAPER 2  SECTION AA commercial bank buys and sells Japanese Yen in Kenya Shillings at the rates shown below. A Japanese tourist at the end of his tour of Kenya was left with Kshs. 30,000 which he converted to Japanese Yen through the commercial bank. How many Japanese Yen did he get? KNEC ANSWERS
Given that 1 Japanese Yen is selling at Ksh 0.5446, we can use this rate to calculate the amount of Japanese Yen the tourist received.
The tourist had Kshs 30,000, so we can calculate the amount of Japanese Yen as follows: Amount in Japanese Yen = Kshs 30,000 ÷ Selling rate of 1 Japanese Yen Amount in Japanese Yen = Kshs 30,000 ÷ 0.5446 The calculation gives us: Amount in Japanese Yen ≈ 55,082.12 Therefore, the tourist received approximately 55,082 Japanese Yen.
