Are the actual above numbers/costs accurate. The methodology can depend on the costs/numbers in the question. You may simply have to work out a conversion factor, i.e. x pounds = so many Euros, or you may be able to do it by subtraction if the numbers fall into place. If, say, the meal was 30 euros and the wine was 10 Euros, and the cap was 20 Euros (30-10), then the price of the cap, in pounds, would be the difference in prices of the meal in pounds and the wine in pounds.

If they were the actual numbers in the q, then as 15 euros = Â£8.60, 10 euros = 2/3 x 8.60
Usually for forex calcs you would take 15/8.60 or 63/47 to get the exchange rate then multiply back up by the 10 to get the Â£'s you need.
