Here, we will show you how to calculate how many quarters there are in 12 nickels.|
First, calculate how many cents there are in 12 nickels by multiplying 12 by 5, and then
divide that result by 25 cents to get the answer.
Here is the math to illustrate better:
12 nickels x 5 cents
= 60 cents
60 cents / 25 cents
= 2.4 quarters
Thus, the answer to the question "How many quarters are in 12 nickels?" is as follows:
+ 10 cents
Note: We multiplied 12 by 5, because there are 5 cents in a nickel, and we divided 60 by 25, because there are 25 cents in a quarter.
