The New York foreign exchange rates below, provided by EAB New York, are selling rates among trading banks of $1 million and more as quoted at 3 p.m. Eastern time. Retail transactions provide fewer units of foreign currency per

dollar. Foreign currency values are expressed in terms of currency units per

dollar unless otherwise noted. To obtain the comparable dollar value, for those rates not quoted in dollars, divide into one. For example, when one U.S.

dollar buys 6.9075 French francs, one dollar divided by 6.9075 francs equals $.1448 or 14.48 U.S. cents per franc.
