How to Convert Pesos to Dollars

The value of the peso isn't the same in every country.

Several countries designate their currency as pesos. Three of these nations are Mexico, the Philippines and Chile. The dollar is the currency in Honk Kong, the United States, Australia and several other places. The relative value of the peso against the dollar is different in each country, and it is determined by how strong a country is politically and economically compared with the other country. Before you convert pesos to dollars, you should find out the exchange rate for the two currencies for the countries in question.


Step 1

Look up the conversion rate of pesos to dollars. The X-Rates website provides an online table that lists this information. As an example for the purposes of this article, assume 1 peso is worth 0.082 dollars.
