  • Answer:

    Option B. 32775.69 Mexican dollars

    Step-by-step explanation:

    In the given question Marge traded 2900 Australian dollars to Mexican pesos.

    Fees charged for the conversion was 45 Australian dollars.

    So remaining dollars will be = Total Australian dollars - Fees charged

                                                  = 2900 - 45

                                                  = 1855

    Now we will covert these Australian dollars to Mexican pesos

    Since 1 Australian dollar = 11.4801 Mexican pesos

    So 1855 Australian dollar = 1855×11.4801

                                              = 32775.6855

                                              ≈ 32775.69 Mexican pesos

    Option B. is the answer.
