When you buy Guatemalan quetzales, the exchange rate you get is the amount of Guatemalan quetzales you'll receive for every pound that you spend, so for example a rate of 11.0523 means you'd get Q11.0523 for each £1 that you spend. You can calculate the total amount of Guatemalan quetzales you'd receive for a given amount of sterling by simply multiplying the sterling amount by the exchange rate.
When it comes to selling Guatemalan quetzales, the buyback rate is expressed in terms of how many Guatemalan quetzales you'd need to sell in order to get £1, so a buyback rate of 11.0523 means you'd need to sell Q11.0523 to get £1. To calculate the sterling value of a given amount of Guatemalan quetzales, you need to divide the Guatemalan quetzal amount by the buyback rate. Since you're dividing by the buyback rate, a lower buyback rate means you'd get more sterling compared to a higher buyback rate.
