Navin from Mauritius, Luka from Croatia, and Ian from Botswana are chatting in the lobby of a youth hostel discussing their part-time jobs. They learn that Navin makes 160 rupee per hour, Luka makes 25 kuna per hour, and Ian makes 34 pula per hour. If one US dollar is equivalent to 32.35 Mauritius rupee, 5.18 Croatian kuna, and 6.95 Botswana pula, who would earn the most after working an eight-hour day?

Convert all 3 currencies to US dollars:

160 rupees / 32.35 =$4.95 US dollar equivalent of 160 Mauritius rupees.

25 kunas / 5.18 =$4.83 US dollar equivalent of 25 Croatian kunas.

34 pulas / 6.95 =$4.89 US dollar equivalent of 34 Botswana pulas.

 

$4.95 x 8 =$39.60 Equivalent US dollars earned by Naven from Mauritius.

$4.89 x 8 =$39.12 Equivalent US dollars earned by Ian from Botswana.

$4.83 x 8 =$38.64 Equivalent US dollars earned by Luka from Croatia.

As you can see, they are very close to each other in earnings for an 8-hour working day for all 3 men.
