You are watching: A dime is 1.25 mm thick. how many meters high would a stack of dimes worth \$50 be?

A dime is 1.25 mm thick, a stack of dimes worth \$50 will be approximately \$0.625 meters high. The answer will be D.
A dime is 1.25 mm thick, a stack of dimes worth \$50 will be approximately \$0.625 meters high. The answer will be D.

Option D. 0.625 meter.

Step-by-step explanation:

As we know 1 dollar = 10 dimes

∴ 50 dollars = 10 × 50 = 500 dimes.

1 dime is 1.25 mm thick.

A stack of 500 dimes (\$50) be = 1.25 × 500 = 625 mm

Now we convert millimeter to meter

1 millimeter = 0.001 meter

625 millimeter = 625 × 0.001 = 0.625 meter

Option D. 0.625 meter.

Step-by-step explanation:

As we know 1 dollar = 10 dimes

∴ 50 dollars = 10 × 50 = 500 dimes.

1 dime is 1.25 mm thick.

A stack of 500 dimes (\$50) be = 1.25 × 500 = 625 mm

Now we convert millimeter to meter

1 millimeter = 0.001 meter

625 millimeter = 625 × 0.001 = 0.625 meter

A stack of dimes worth \$50 would be 0.625 meter high.

1.25mm x 50 = 62.5 mm Now lets change mm to meters. There are 1000 millimeters in a meter and we are only talking about 62.5 so we are not even at a single meter. Answers B and C can be eliminated.  meter decimeter centimeter millimeter (each one is ten times more or less than the previous one depending on where you start.Since we are changing mm to m, we will get fewer. Why - try grouping any small things like 14 days - you get 2 weeks. 72 hours - you get 3 days. Notice that the number gets lower. 14>2 and 72>3So we can expect our number to get smaller. The beauty of the metric system it that is based on 10 so it involves moving decimals and adding or subtracting zeros if needed. meter dm cm mm 62.5 notice that it would take 3 "jumps" to the left to get it under the word meter. That means our decimal has to move 3 jumps to the left too. In order to do that we need to add a zero in front of the 6 in 62.5Correct answer is 0.0625 which is none of the answers above - Notice that the decimal is 3 places left from where it was before (62.5).

625 mm

Step-by-step explanation:

\$50 worth in dimes is 500 dimes. 500 dimes times 1.25mm per dime = 625mm

The stack is 6.25m high.

Step-by-step explanation:

A dime is a 10 cent coin.

100 cents make \$1.

5000 cents will make \$50.

It is given 1 dime is 1.25 mm thick

Thickness of 5000 dimes =1.25 x5000 = 6250 mm

1000 mm = 1m

6250 mm = 6.25m

The stack is 6.25m high.
