Converting currency can be confusing. Because of the ever-changing exchange rate, there is never a fixed conversion. Fortunately, currency conversion calculators are widely available on the Internet, all of which offer up-to-date exchange rates, and they will convert almost any currency you can think of. One of the most common currency conversions is dollars to pounds and vice versa. While it might be quicker to use a currency conversion website, there is a simple way to convert pounds to dollars.
Decide on the amount, in pounds, that you wish to convert. In this case, it is 75 pounds.
Check the current conversion rate of pounds to dollars. This is readily available on the Internet, or at your local currency exchange bureau. As of October 2010, 1 pound converts to £1.0.
Multiply the current conversion rate by the amount that you wish to convert. This will give you the pounds to dollars conversion. For example, 75 pounds equals £77.1.
Make sure you search for pound to dollar conversion rate, rather than dollar to pound. It is an easy mistake to make, and it will give you the wrong conversion.
