Q:

How many nickels are in 2 dollars?

A:

There are 40 nickels in 2 dollars. You can calculate this as follows:

  1. Determine how many cents are in $2.00. Since there are 100 cents (pennies) in $1.00, that means there are 200 cents in $2.00.
  2. Find out how many cents are in a nickel. There are 5 cents in a nickel.
  3. Now, divide 200 (cents in $2.00) by 5 (the value of 1 nickel ). The equation is 200 ÷ 5 = 40 nickels in 2 dollars.
