If you’re asking how many dimes make a dollar, the answer is 10. There are 100 cents in a dollar, and each dime is made up of ten cents. Therefore, if you have 10 dimes, that means you have 100 cents, or 1 dollar. Adding everything up becomes a simple exercise in math.
You just figure it like this:
1 dime = 10 cents.
1 dollar = 100 cents, so therefore you just divide 100/10 to yield 10.
There you have it. How many dimes are in $1 dollar? It’s 10.
