    Answer: To earn a riskless profit, you will need $.05 per US dollar invested.


    First, I would Exchange $1 USD into New Zealand dollars, This would give me;

    1.00 x 1.39 = $1.39 NZD. Then, I would Exchange NZD to British Pounds to give me

    1.39 x. 47 = £0.65. Lastly I would Exchange British Pound back to USD which would be

    I USD = £0.62

    Therefore £0.65 to dollar gives

    = 0.65 x ($1/£.62) = $1.05 USD

    Therefore my riskless profit becomes $.05because

    $1.05 - $1.00 = $.05 per US dollar invested.
