Here, we will show you how to calculate how many nickels there are in 42 dollars.
First, calculate how many cents there are in 42 dollars by multiplying 42 by 100, and then
divide that result by 5 cents to get the answer.
Here is the math to illustrate better:
42 dollars x 100 cents
= 4,200 cents
4,200 cents / 5 cents
= 840 nickels
Thus, the answer to the question "How many nickels are in 42 dollars?" is as follows:
840 nickels
Note: We multiplied 42 by 100, because there are 100 cents in a dollar, and we divided 4,200 by 5, because there are 5 cents in a nickel.
