Default what is 397.31 p in Dollars

Help Guys,
What the heck am I doing?? What is a rough conversion of
397.31 p within say 20 bucks in US dollars. Please tell me the ratio you used even if an old factor, as more looking to lean the math. THANK YOU !!

English Pound = UK Pound = GBP... all the same thing.

1 GBP = 1.73661 USD (US Dollar)
1 USD = 0.575835 GBP

Thanks Ron,
I went to a conversion site other than the one you provided before my post . It gave me all the choices so made me think I was missing the big picture for sure. Then clicked on your path and saw some of the same choices so now I was sure I was crazy. Well I was correct at least once tonight.
Appreciate your help again ! Take care Jeff C

Hey Bernie,
Were your ears burning yesterday, We were talking at the local car show and you mentioned maybe a Hummer would follow you home some day. I had a New Hummer pull up by me and made me think of you. This one was decked out with evey conceivable goodie and just done right.
The conversion and Euro question came from a deal I am working on to reduce my As Shipped Car sales price. Just looking at ways that save the customer a few bucks. If items that are generic can be purchased IN Country (shiping destination) saving duty and other associated costs then maybe best for my customers. I asked a friend to look into my possibilities of buying direct and drop shipping to my end Customer with my purchasing powers but was did not directly talk to supplier so not sure where they were and details... ETC. Always looking for better ways to skin a cat so to speak. NOTE : No live cats were harmed during the creation of this Email. LMAO Jeff C

Exclamation Stormin Bernie...

Jeff
I had the opportunity to really go over a H2 and thought it was pretty good. I'm not keen on the little/baby version though.

My choice would be one of the early H1, (rough desert storm) models. I saw one for sale in Az. there for a reasonable price.



Never know. I would have fun pushing the Cobras off the track at Wakefield Park Raceway in it. If I could catch them..

Bernie

Hi Jeff. Don`t forget that there is a 'buyers' & 'sellers' rate above & below the rates that Ron posted, so my 397.31 might only get me $660, rather than the $690 that the actual rate equals.(today!)
If your customer is in the UK, it will still probably be cheaper for him to buy from you & import!
Nik.

What ever it costs in pounds, one thing for sure - its expensive!!

Simply divide pounds by 0.4 and that will give you a good idea.

As a rule, what ever you buy in pounds you can get the same thing here (if available) for in dollars.

Some Financial Analyists use MacDonalds as a gauge for any one countries economy. Its about the only company who operates almost anywhere.

eg Macca in UK 5 pounds, in Aus $5 dependant upon whether you order large fries.

Bern might be able to offer more info on this front - or maybe he's too far up the Corporate ladder to know what a macca's costs!!!!!

Moved onto uniforms!!!!!!!!!!!!
