Here, we will show you how to calculate how many quarters there are in 17 nickels.|
First, calculate how many cents there are in 17 nickels by multiplying 17 by 5, and then
divide that result by 25 cents to get the answer.
Here is the math to illustrate better:
17 nickels x 5 cents
= 85 cents
85 cents / 25 cents
= 3.4 quarters
