Here, we will show you how to calculate how many dimes there are in 11 nickels.|
First, calculate how many cents there are in 11 nickels by multiplying 11 by 5, and then
divide that result by 10 cents to get the answer.
Here is the math to illustrate better:
11 nickels x 5 cents
= 55 cents
55 cents / 10 cents
= 5.5 dimes
Thus, the answer to the question "How many dimes are in 11 nickels?" is as follows:

Note: We multiplied 11 by 5, because there are 5 cents in a nickel, and we divided 55 by 10, because there are 10 cents in a dime.
