    If the price of the pen is $10.

    1) If the price of the pen in that country is $10 then after conversion the price of it would be the same as this country.
    2) If the the price of the pen in that country is $10 then after conversion it would cost as much as it would here.


    Are the above sentences written correctly? Please help.
    Thanks

    They are correct except for the "the the" in #2.

    1) (original) "If the price of the pen in that country is $10 then after conversion the price of it would be the same as in this country." (The price is not the same as a country).

    I'd suggest not labelling more than one sentence 1) in a thread.
    What does the sentence mean? That the conversation rate is 1:1?
