What means three yuan?

Yuan is Chinese currency so 3 yuan is an amount of money

[deactivated user]

That is a very small ammt btw

(USD \$0.46, UKP £0.34, CAD CA\$0.59, EUE €0.38)

OHHHH Thanks

Ok ok ok ok ok nice nice nice oh my god I am so much

3 yuan sanyuan

Thanks so much

Ohh, thank you very much.

Thank you so much

Yuan is currency of mainland China.

Yuan is the chinese currency, so it means like 3\$

Yeah but with the exchange rate so probably more like .42 of a dollar

I was told that it was about 1 Yuan = ¢15

[deactivated user]

15¢, yep. 3x15=45 therefore Chinese \$3= USD \$0.45

There are some minor factors like the \$0.000th cent that may affect the \$0.00's (like a \$0.005 that is so small it doesn't even matter until it is added up for a multiple of two) therefore making the real amount about US\$0.46. Of course this doesn't matter now that you can't buy anything significant with 3 HKD or \$0.46 USD, and is why I, along with many other people (for other reasons along with this) think the penny should die in a hole as deep as the center of our earth and never be uncovered unless our money is to ever gain worth to the point you could buy a house (of at least 1,500 sq ft) with \$100.

Sorry for mah ranting just got a bit carried away.

1 yuan is 15 cents

Is the Chinese currency.yuan

3 money

Chinese currency

How to pronounce three yuan

thank you for this ale!

Three Yuan = ¥3 = \$3 = Three Dollars

I am in love with Chinese!

So it is money?

元”[yuan 2] {formal/informal} （coins, currency）& “块”[kuai 4] {oral, informal} （a piece）are used after the numerals, indicating the price of items. You can choose any of them in oral conversations. But better use “元”[yuan 2] in writing.

Eg: 五块 [wu 5, kuai 4] (five RMB)

十元店 [shi 2, yuan 2, dian 4] (ten RMB Shop)= dollar shop/reject shop

“钱”[qian 2] (money) “钅” is a variant of “金”[jin 1], meaning gold or metal in general;“戋”[jian 1] (farm tools，eg: shovel) as in ancient China, farm tools were used as a medium of exchange. And when there created metal coins (with a hole in the middle for being portable), this character looked like a string of coins, so it was used to represent money.

Eg: “多少钱？”[duo 1, shao 3, qian 2] (more + less + money =How much?)

“钱包”[qian 2, bao 1] (money + wrap = wallet/ purse)

And because ancient Chinese once tried to use shells to be the medium of exchange in Xia Dynasty (2070-1600 BC), a lot of characters related to money have “贝” [bei 4] （shell）as one of their components.

Eg:
• “贵” [gui 4] (expensive) ： the variant of “臾”[yu 2] on top means fertile and rich

“太贵了”[tai 4, gui 4, le] (Too + expensive+ alas !)

• “贫” [pin 2] (poor) : “分”[fen 1] means separate/divide. You will be poorer financially after giving out all the 10 yuan in your bank account to other people.

“贫穷”[pin 2, qiong 2] (poor + thoroughly = poverty)

• “购” [gou 4] (purchase/buy):“勾”[gou 1] contributes to the pronunciation of the character.

“购物”[gou 4, wu 4] (buy + things = shopping)

• “财” [cai 2] (fortune) :“才”[cai 2] contributes to the pronunciation of the character.

“发财”[fa 1, cai 2] (find + fortune = get rich)

“恭喜发财”[gong 1, xi 3, fa 1, cai 2] {Mandarin} ; [Kung hey fat choy] {Cantonese} (You get rich ! Congratulations!)

The information about the origins and developments of the characters here is fascinating! Thanks.

In your example for (five RMB) - [wu 5, kuai 4], why did you put wu 5, doesn't 五 have the third tone?

Yeah, you're right<sub>typo</sub>sorry 五 means "five" but with the third tone.

yes. yuan is the type of currency in taiwan and china. Each american dollar equals about 30 new taiwan yen (yuan), but i don't know how much it converts to in china

Would anyone be willing to help me with the pronunciation of this? It's hard for me to pick out what the consonants are.

Yuan would be said as U-ann, but faster and with a smoother vibe.

Chinese use its currency as Yuan or RMB (RenMinBi)

It says write in English. Is yuan English or Chinese?

Both, yuan is an English word and the pinyin (Chinese characters to English letters) translation of (insert Chinese character here)

Or rather, it's both since it's a name. You wouldn't say "euro" if you meant "pound", naturally China's yuan is the same

Why does "qi" sound like chi or shi?

it... just does, i guess lol

That's pinyin for ya

Yuan is the coin like the name of the money?

Yes, but it can be also in paper bills, or also called RMB

Why does it sound like "fan"?

But it doesn't really.

It would be nice to see the meaning of each word first

Les ofresco aprender español

Would three yuans be correct? I mean, does yuan have a plural, like dollar(s) or pound(s) or rupee(s)?

San yuan

it means three dollars

Nope, yuan is the money of china so the dollars are diferent

The tone of 三 is turned from 2nd to 3rd after joining with 元

I need some help everyone help me because this is not good I told you to tell me was not in heaven so, in my app I got some amazing stuff I got I know how to speak Chinese and Japanese cuz I'm good at it and I am the best and I'm cool and I am the best because I like to wrestle stuff and do stuff so come here and do this I'm talking about you and I said I like it like it I am like to destroy this world right now because I am Donald Trump son

Thank you

Im getting really better

Isn't the Chinese currency renminbi? (RMB)

人民币 [ren 2, min2, bi 4] {Ren Min Bi= RMB} (people’s currency)

Apparently, three characters are too long so people placed a character “ 元” or “块” as a quantifier/indicator after the numerals for the price.

Older currency is Yuan, newer generations tend to call it RMB

3 yuan=0.15 US Dollar as we speak

15 us cents?

DOLLARS

Alguem br?

Why is it half chinese and half american?

Why does the translation hints include 三 as 3.7?

No idea.

I think kuai and RMB should also be accepted since it is used interchangably with yuan.

Ya I guess

There are two options for 3 which is spelled out twice but one beginning with an uppercase character

But sàn is 3, why is sàn yuán equals 3?

shan means 3
