Here, we will show you how to calculate how many dollars there are in 5 quarters.|
First, calculate how many cents there are in 5 quarters by multiplying 5 by 25, and then
divide that result by 100 cents to get the answer.
Here is the math to illustrate better:
5 quarters x 25 cents
= 125 cents
125 cents / 100 cents
= 1.25 dollars
Thus, the answer to the question "How many dollars are in 5 quarters?" is as follows:
+ 25 cents
Note: We multiplied 5 by 25, because there are 25 cents in a quarter, and we divided 125 by 100, because there are 100 cents in a dollar.
