We will discuss the conversion of rupees and paises (that is, from rupees to paises and from paises to rupees).

How to convert rupees to paises

Process 1:

First we need to remove the period and then remove Rs or Re and write the Paise at the end.

For example, to convert Rs 4.25 to Paise, we express it as 425 Paise.

Consider some of the following examples:

(i) Re 0.60 = 60 Paise

(ii) Rs 11.05 = 1105 Paise

(iii) Rs. 14.00 = 1400 Paise

Process 2: (using process 2 we will solve the same examples of process 1)

We know that 1 rupee = 100 paises. When we convert rupees to paises, we multiply by 100.

For example, Rs 4.25 = Rs 4 + 25 Paise

= 4 × 100 Paise + 25 Paise

= 400 paises + 25 paises

= 425 Paise

Consider some of the following examples:

(i) Re 0.60 = Rs 0 + 60 Paise

= 0x100 Paise + 60 Paise

= 0 paises + 60 paises

= 60 Paise

(ii) Rs 11.05 = Rs 11 + 05 Paise

= 11 × 100 Paise + 05 Paise

= 1100 Paise + 05 Paise

= 1105 Paise

(iii) Rs. 14.00 = Rs 14 + 00 Paise

= 14 × 100 paises + 00 paises

= 1400 Paise + 00 Paise

= 1400 Paise

How to convert paise to rupee

To convert paises to rupees, we must first count two digits from the right and put a point and also write Rs or Re at the beginning.

Consider some of the following examples:

(i) 1250 p = Rs 12.50

(ii) 705 p = Rs 7.05

(iii) 30 p = Rs 0.30
