Now, let's take a look at a currency table:
Row 1 & Column 1: Currency Name (or symbol)
If you are reading this table the values are in the following context:
$1 in currency of row #1, is worth $___ in column #1 dollars.
For example, 1 euro is worth $1.3926 in Canadian dollars. If you were in Canada and you wanted to exchange your 1 euro for Canadian dollars, you would get $1.3926 in return. On the other side of the equation, if you had $1 Canadian and you wanted to convert it to euros, you would get 0.7181 in return. Both of these numbers are circled in red on the table.
It is also important to note that 1/1.3926 = 0.7181. If you only have the currency rate for one direction, then all you need to do is divide one by that number to find the value in the other country's currency.
