Google is badder than you Think: See Multiple Currency Calculation

Google, as you know, has a built-in calculator that can solve complex maths equations and can also help you perform measurement and currency conversions. For instance, you could say “310 USD in NGN” to get the exchange rate of Nigeria NGN.

The more interesting part, that some of us aren’t probably aware of, is that Google’s calculator can even handle multiple currencies in the same conversion. To give you an example, if you were into numismatics, you could add your Euors and USD, even subtract a British pound and get the value of your currency collection in Nigeria Naira in the one search query.

How? see below

So yes, Google is badder than you think……
