Is it cheaper to use debit or credit cards in France?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

I asked this to a friend of mine who now lives in France

I wrote a summary of what they said.

In France, it is generally cheaper to use a debit card for transactions, as there are often fewer fees associated with debit card usage.

Debit cards are linked directly to the cardholder's bank account and typically do not incur additional charges beyond any foreign transaction fees that may be imposed by the bank. Credit cards, on the other hand, may come with additional fees, such as foreign transaction fees, cash advance fees, and potentially higher interest rates if the balance is not paid off in full each month.

I hope that this helped!

What is the best description of a debit card?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

A debit card is like a financial multitool in your wallet. It's your personal key to the kingdom of purchases and transactions. With a debit card, you're not carrying cash – it's your digital sidekick for buying groceries, grabbing a coffee, or indulging in a little retail therapy. It's a magic pass that lets you access your bank account effortlessly, deducting the amount you spend directly. Think of it as your financial Swiss Army knife, simplifying payments and providing the freedom to shop and spend securely, all with a simple swipe or a chip insert. It's the bridge between your wallet and the digital world, making everyday transactions a breeze.

Which two numbers have a product of 36 and a sum of 13?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

4 & 9

For any two unknown numbers, we can say

nm = 36

n + m = 13


n = 13 - m


(13 - m) m = 36

Multiply out

13m - m^2 = 36

m^2 - 13m + 36 = 0


( m -9)( m - 4) = 0


m = 4 & m = 9

NB THis is good for any two unknown numbers, to be found against any constant.

Does cvs sell prepaid debit cards?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

As of my last knowledge update in September 2021, CVS, the pharmacy and retail store chain, did sell prepaid debit cards. They typically offered a variety of prepaid cards from different issuers, such as Visa, Mastercard, and American Express. These prepaid cards could be used for various purposes, including making purchases and managing personal finances.

However, the availability of specific prepaid cards and their terms may vary by location and could have changed since then. I recommend checking with your local CVS store or visiting their official website to confirm if they still sell prepaid debit cards and to inquire about the specific brands and options available.

The Docks, Longshoremen Casuals ect. The reasoning behind this is that they are union and it would violate union code per-say. For example. If a computer comes into the picture and you have 2500 large shipping containers and you have to organize these and figure out where they go. Everything is done by clerks who don't have modern computers because if they had computers to do the job it would put people out of work.

What kind of math does an architect need to know?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The math skills needed to create or construct a building are not many indeed. If you have ever watched someone build anything, you may have seen them use a tape measurer or a ruler. they are not supposed to. The ability to measure is a basic math skill. It is how an architect communicates the length or size of things we want to build. We must be able to add and subtract these numbers but also must be able to use fractions of these numbers. Today, we deal with measurements that are both the English system and the Metric system. Architects use math to convert between these two systems of measurement. You may also find architects using the many formulas and principles of geometry to create a building. Think about designing a building. How strong do the walls and beams and ceilings need to be? You figure that out with math, knowing the weights and strengths of the materials. How much of the materials do you need? It depends on the sizes of the walls, rooms, ceilings, all of that is math. Is concrete cheaper, or steel or cinder block? It depends on how much of each you need, what they cost to buy and build. How long will each stage of the construction take, and how can they be planned to overlap to get the building done the fastest? How much does each sq. foot. of the building rent for, and how long will it take to pay off the investment? How will it affect traffic in the neighborhood? How big does the garage need to be to hold the cars of what percentage of the people who work in the building or customers/clients who visit the building?

What about windows? How many sq. feet per wall? 567. How much heat will build up in the rooms because of the windows? That will affect how much air conditioning you need. Also windows leak heat during the Winter so more of them means more heat too. How many electrical outlets do you need? How many amps do you need from the power lines? How many circuit-breakers? How many lighting fixtures do you need? In modern buildings, the lighting system is considered part of the heating system--which is why you see lights on in skyscrapers in the middle of the night when nobody is there.

For big, tall buildings, architects are even concerned with how the wind affects them, how it swirls between buildings. They use computer models for this. Also things like earthquake resistance.

There's almost every kind of math here! Geometry and trig, calculus, accounting, engineering, finite element analysis, computer modeling, etc.etc.

Are possums dangerous?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

No. Possums are not dangerous.

The possum is unlikely to attack a human being unless it feels it is left with no other choice. The possum is giving away both height and reach and knows it is likely to come off worse in a fight with a human. Usually it will 'play dead' if it is caught unawares. The best advice is to go along with the possum's game and leave the little chicken alone safe in the knowledge he knows who's boss. That way nobody gets bitten.


Only the North American opossum plays dead.

True possums - the marsupials found in many parts of Australia - do not play dead, but they will scratch or bite if cornered. They are very docile creatures and just want to be left alone. If trapped, like any other animal, they become scared for their life and will defend themselves. Other than that, just give them a way out and they will take it. There is no reason to ever fear a possum. They are a very clean, disease free animal, although they are known to harbour ticks and fleas, and pose more of a danger to domestic pets than to people.

Incidentally, the "playing dead" strategy is not a choice - it is a physiological defence over which the opossum has no control. It is not trying to show anyone "who's boss" - it is an instinctive defence mechanism.
