$2.00

How much is a nickel? 5 c (cents) How many nickels do we have? 40 nickels

1 nickel= 5 cents 40 nickels=?

Multiply 40 nickels X 5 cents= 200 cents

Now we know we have 200 cents, but not how many dollars, but you know that there are 100 cents in 1 dollar so 200 cents means we have 2 dollars.

Therefore, 40 nickels is equal to $2.00
