A French couple celebrates their 50th anniversary with a trip to Florida. One night they buy a bottle of wine that, even by French standards, is premium. They buy it with 130 Euros, and the exchange rate that day is 1.35 dollars per Euro. The restaurant charges a 3 percentage-point premium to exchange currencies. The wine was priced at $171.22 American, and the couple got five American coins back as change.
