**There are 100 dimes in 10 dollars. **

Below, we will show you how we calculated that 100 dimes equal 10 dollars….

**Step 1:**

Let’s first determine how many dimes are in 1 dollar. The table below gives the answer. There are 10 dimes in one dollar.

7 Dimes | 70 Cents |

8 Dimes | 80 Cents |

9 Dimes | 90 Cents |

10 Dimes | One Dollar ($1.00) |

**Step 2:**

Now that we know that there are 10 dimes in one dollar, we need to determine how many dollars bills are in 10 dollars. There are 10 dollar bills in 10 dollars as shown below.

9 Dollar Bills | 9 Dollars or $9.00 |

10 Dollar Bills | 10 Dollars or $10.00 |

**Steps 3: **

Based on the previous steps, we know that there are 10 dimes in a dollar and 10 dollar bills in 10 dollars. We can now determine how many dimes in 10 dollars based on this information.

We simply times the 10 (# of dimes in a dollar) by 10 (dollar bills in $10.00) to equal 100 dimes in 10 dollars.

In equation form it is:

10 x 10 = **100 dimes in 10 dollars**
