2) $1.25 to 1.25
To do further basic mathematical calculation. like Addition.

I have tried using System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex() and System.String .Format(),but no luck.Please help.

Have you already tried using Decimal.Parse Method (String, NumberStyles)[^]

This method lets you to define different flags how to interpret the input string.

For example with my locale the following converts corrrectly:
decimal.Parse("(€1,25)", System.Globalization.NumberStyles.Currency);

The currency identifier and the decimal point symbol are controlled via locale information.
