Hint: We start solving the problem by recalling the conversion of rupees into paise as 1 rupee = 100 paise. We then perform the necessary calculations to find the number of rupees that 1 paise is equivalent to. We then use this conversion and multiply it with 25 to convert twenty-five paise into rupees which is the required result. Complete step by step answer: According to the problem, we need to convert the given twenty-five paise to rupees using the decimals. We know that the conversion of rupee and paise is defined as 1 rupee = 100 paise. So, we get 1 paise = 1100 rupees. ⇒ 1 paise = 0.01 rupees. Let us use this conversion to convert twenty-five paise to rupees. So, we have 25 paise = 25×0.01 rupees. ⇒ 25 paise = 0.25 rupees. ∴ We have found that the conversion of twenty-five paise in rupees as 0.25 rupees. Note: Whenever we get this type of problem, we first try to find the conversion between the required units as it gives us the half of the answer. We can also solve this by dividing both sides of the conversion 1 rupee = 100 paise with 4 to get the required answer. We can express the given twenty-five paisa in terms of fractions (if it is mentioned in the problem). Similarly, we can express problems to express 5 rupees to the paise.
