Q:

How many dimes are in a pound?

A:

Approximately 200 dimes will make a pound. The weight of a dime is precisely 2.268 grams, or eight hundredths of an ounce. Simply divide 1 pound by the weight of the dime to get the answer.

Set up an equation to visualize how to solve the equation correctly. When converting 1 pound to grams, a result of 453.592 is attained. Therefore, the equation 453.592 = 2.268x is used in this situation. The symbol "x" is the amount of dimes needed to make up 453.592 grams, or 1 pound. Multiplying 2.268 by "x" results in the answer of 453.592 grams, or 1 pound.
