Part a:- 7.15 rands = 1 dollar So we are going to MULTIPLY to find out how many rands there are going to be. 1000 × 7.15 = 7150 So, 7150 rands is your answer.  Part b:- To do this first we will DIVIDE.  6274 ÷ 7.15 ≈ 877.482....... So, 6274 rands is ABOUT $878. Par a:- 7150 rands Part b:- about $878. Hope I helped ya!!!!!
