Bank A                                                                         Bank B

1 USD=106.00 Yen                                                    1 AUD=83.00 Yen

1 USD=3.9000 MYR                                                   1 AUD= 3.0700 MYR

1 EURO=1.2400 USD

1 AUD=0.7850 USD

Therefore, 1 AUD=106 x0.7850 Yen

=83.21 Yen

Bank A > Bank B

Therefore, 1 AUD = 3.9 X 0.785

= 3.0615
