This is a simple exercise to ensure that you know how to use the UserInput

Write a program that converts Japanese yen to British Pounds Sterling.
You may wish to look at and use the provided Currency class. In that case
RIGHT-click on the brown 'Currency' box, then LEFT click on the option 'void
finally click 'OK' in the 'BlueJ: Method Call' box. Inspect the implementation
source code. Also
try creating objects of the Currency class by RIGHT-clicking on the brown
'Currency' box, then
LEFT click on the new Currency() option. Click 'OK' in the 'BlueJ: Create
Object' box. RIGHT-click
on the red 'currency_1' box, then LEFT click on each of the options. Note
that if a 'BlueJ: Method
Call' box requests a parameter then String values must be surrounded by double
quotation marks e.g.

Currency to convert from: JPY
Rate of exchange to British Sterling pence: 1.73464
Amount to exchange: 327.55
327.55 JPY goes directly to 1 pounds 88 pence British Sterling GBP
Make use of UserInput.read........() to read input from the keyboard.
Use / and % for integer modulus division to convert pence to pounds and pence
Make liberal use of comments and use correct indentation style to make your
program more readable
and easy to understand.
In practice, the conversion rate would be read in from a file or database
rather than being input
as a value for each conversion.
