Miss Penny the Pound.

1 Rupee= 100 paise

= 10 paise x 10 paise

= 1/10 rupee x 1/10 rupee

= 1/100 rupee

= 1 paisa

therefore 1 rupee= 1 paisa...

What's the confusion over here???

P.S - Adapted from a post on the internet.

The problem here is in step 2 when 100 paise is written as 10 paise x 10 paise. The thing is you cannot write a unit like this, paise is a unit not algebraic number on which you can perform the function. This actually leads to paise^2 which is wrong, you cannot split paise into 2.

1 Rupee=100 paise = 10 x 10 paise
= 10 x (1/10)Rupee = 1 Rupee
