    Hi Guys,

    I have a selection day for CTC Wings next week which includes aptitude tests and a maths test. I have been studying long multiplication/division and subtraction and I'm fairly confident with these parts. HOWEVER while looking at people tips on the web about the tests, one person has mentioned a question that was included... 'if 1 Euro is worth 0.89 GBP, and 1 GBP is worth 48 Japanese Yen, what is 256 Yen in Euros'

    I need your help in figuring out how to solve this question as I am clueless.

    256/48 = number of gdp that the yen is worth.

    Then take that number and divide by 0.89. Theres your answer should be about 5.99 euros.
