How to convert coins to cents?
To convert coins to cents, you need to know the denomination or value of each coin in cents. Here’s how you can do it:
Identify the type of coin: Look at the coin to see what it is. For example, in the United States, coins include the penny, nickel, dime, quarter, and so on.
Find the denomination of the coin: Look for the number or symbol on the coin that represents its value. For example, a US penny has “1 cent” on it, a nickel has “5 cents”, a dime has “10 cents”, and a quarter has “25 cents”.
Multiply the number of coins by the denomination: Once you know the denomination of the coin, you can multiply the number of coins by its value to get the total value in cents. For example, if you have 10 pennies, you can multiply 10 by 1 to get 10 cents. If you have 5 dimes, you can multiply 5 by 10 to get 50 cents.
Add up the total value of all the coins: Finally, add up the values of all the coins to get the total value in cents. For example, if you have 10 pennies, 5 dimes, and 2 quarters, you can add 10 + 50 + 50 = 110 cents.
