Different countries uses different currencies. Indian currency is known as rupees. Short form of the rupees is Rs. we write 78 rupees as Rs. 78. One rupees is equal to hundred paise. Symbol of rupees is "Rs." and Symbol of the paise is "p". We write 65 paise as 65p.

Rs. 1 = 100 paise.

Or 1 p = Rs. 0.01

When we write rupees and paise together, for example 60 rupees and 70 paise, we write Rs. 60 and 70 P or Rs. 60.70. Rupees and paise are separated by a dot (.). Paise is always written as a two digit number. 8 rupees 5 paise is written as Rs. 8.05 not Rs. 8.5
