 English term or phrase: Ps Ps is Mexican pesos. What about these conversion figures? Ps2.403 billion= (USD 263 mil millones?) PS2.373 billion= (USD 260 mil millones)?

 Spanish translation:Take a look below... Explanation:What's wrong is that Mexican pesos are expressed in billions, not in billones as it should be, and USD in miles de millones instead of billions. Now if you consider that the Spanish billón equals 1 followed by 12 zeros, whereas the US billion equals 1 followed by only 9 zeros, everything's OK. In the first pair the exchange rate between 2.403 (dos punto cuatrocientos tres, no dos mil cuatrocientos tres) billones and 263 billions is 9.137, and in the second one, between 2.373 (dos punto trescientos setentitrés, no dos mil trescientos setentitrés) billones y 260 billions it's 9.127. If I'm not wrong, that's approximately the ER between the two currencies.
