Exchange rate determination - calculation

Syllabus: Calculate the value of one currency in terms of another currency.

Syllabus: Calculate the exchange rate for linear demand and supply functions.

Syllabus: Plot demand and supply curves for a currency from linear functions and identify the equilibrium exchange rate.

Syllabus: Using exchange rates, calculate the price of a good in different currencies.

For higher level, you need to be able to understand how to calculate the equilibrium exchange rate in a market. You will need to calculate this from linear demand and supply functions and to be able to plot the demand and supply curves for foreign exchange. You will also need to be able to calculate exchange rates and the prices of goods in other currencies. The presentation below goes through this.
