Here, we will show you how to calculate how many dimes there are in 21 nickels.|
First, calculate how many cents there are in 21 nickels by multiplying 21 by 5, and then
divide that result by 10 cents to get the answer.
Here is the math to illustrate better:
21 nickels x 5 cents
= 105 cents
105 cents / 10 cents
= 10.5 dimes
Thus, the answer to the question "How many dimes are in 21 nickels?" is as follows:
