MICHAEL: When you’re planning a
trip, it’s often useful to know how much something is worth in
your home country’s currency. One way to get this information
is to just type the currency conversion
you want into Google. Let’s suppose I’m buying a
train ticket, and I want to know how much 50 British
pounds are in U.S. dollars. I can just type 50 pounds
and U.S. dollars, and the conversion appears. This also works for other
conversions, like kilometers to miles or even
liters to gallons.
