Here, we will show you how to calculate how many dimes there are in 3 nickels.|
First, calculate how many cents there are in 3 nickels by multiplying 3 by 5, and then
divide that result by 10 cents to get the answer.
Here is the math to illustrate better:
3 nickels x 5 cents
= 15 cents
15 cents / 10 cents
= 1.5 dimes
Thus, the answer to the question "How many dimes are in 3 nickels?" is as follows:
+ 5 cents
Note: We multiplied 3 by 5, because there are 5 cents in a nickel, and we divided 15 by 10, because there are 10 cents in a dime.
