Attempt number 1: Start with SF to \$

Step 1: SF to \$ :
=13000000/1.02
=12745098.04

Step 2: \$ to Yen :
=13000000/1.02*90.34
=1151392157

Profit or Loss 12519214.49-13000000=-480785.5076 SF

Attempt ends in a Loss

Attempt number 2: Start with SF to Yen:

Step 1: SF to yen :
=13000000*91.97=1195610000.00

Step 2: yen to \$ :
=13000000*91.97/90.34=13234558.34
