#### Solution Summary

Exchange rate is the value of one currency (the numerator) in relation to another currency (the denominator). For example \$/IRP is the value of US dollar for a unit of Indian Rupee (IRP). As the demand for Indian Rupee increases, its value as compared to USD will increase, and vice versa. In other words, IRP appreciates against USD or USD depreciates against IRP.
