# Conversion of Rupees and Paise

We will discuss about the conversion of rupees and paise (i.e. from rupees into paise and from paise into rupees).

We know that, Rs.1 = 100 paise

How to convert rupees into paise?

Process 1:

First we need to remove the point and then remove Rs or Re and write the paise at the end.

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

Consider some of the following examples on convert rupees into paise:

(i) Re 0.60 = 60 paise

(ii) Rs 11.05 = 1105 paise

(iii) Rs. 14.00 = 1400 paise

(iv) Convert Rs. 12.40 into paise.

To convert this into paise, simply remove the dot.

So, Rs. 12.40 = 1240 p

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

We know that 1 rupee = 100 paise. When we convert rupees into paise, we multiply by 100.

For example, Rs 4.25 = Rs 4 + 25 paise

= 4 × 100 paise + 25 paise

= 400 paise + 25 paise

= 425 paise

Consider some of the following examples on Convert Rupees into Paise:

To convert rupees into paise, we multiply the amount with 100.

(i) Re 0.60 = Rs 0 + 60 paise

= 0 × 100 paise + 60 paise

= 0 paise + 60 paise

= 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 paise + 00 paise

= 1400 paise + 00 paise

= 1400 paise

(iv) Convert Rs. 3 into paise.

Solution:

3 × 100 paise = 300 paise

So,  Rs. 3 = 300 p

(v) Convert  Rs. 12.40 into paise.

Solution:

Amount in words- Twelve rupees and forty paise

12 × 100 paise + 40 paise = 1240 paise

So, Rs. 12.40 = 1240 p

(iii) 30 p = Rs 0.30
