00:00:01.040 --> 00:00:03.930
What is the same as 28 cents?
00:00:04.380 --> 00:00:13.340
One-quarter and one nickel, two dimes and three nickels, or one-quarter and three pennies.
00:00:15.150 --> 00:00:20.380
Before we answer this question, let’s think about coins and their values.
00:00:21.630 --> 00:00:23.130
We can start with a penny.
00:00:23.530 --> 00:00:26.420
How many cents is one penny equal to?
00:00:28.210 --> 00:00:28.740
One.
00:00:29.350 --> 00:00:31.210
A penny is one cent.
00:00:32.370 --> 00:00:33.660
How about nickels?
00:00:34.500 --> 00:00:36.840
One nickel is worth how many cents?
00:00:38.150 --> 00:00:38.870
Five.
00:00:38.960 --> 00:00:54.160
One nickel is worth five cents, one dime is worth 10 cents, and one-quarter is worth 25 cents.
00:00:54.670 --> 00:00:57.540
We can use this chart to answer our question.
00:00:58.970 --> 00:01:10.620
One-quarter and one nickel would equal 25 cents plus five cents — the value of one-quarter plus the value of one nickel.
00:01:11.600 --> 00:01:14.830
25 plus five equals 30.
00:01:16.230 --> 00:01:19.000
Is 30 the same as 28 cents?
00:01:20.410 --> 00:01:20.910
No.
00:01:25.200 --> 00:01:28.900
So answer choice a is not the same.
00:01:30.030 --> 00:01:39.730
Moving down to answer choice b two dimes and three nickels, we know that dimes are worth 10 cents.
00:01:40.440 --> 00:01:47.540
And this list has two dimes — 10 plus 10 — and three nickels.
00:01:48.600 --> 00:01:53.520
So we need three fives because a nickel is worth five cents.
00:01:54.880 --> 00:02:00.510
What is 10 plus 10 plus five plus five plus five?
00:02:01.850 --> 00:02:06.250
When we add all of that up together, it equals 35 cents.
00:02:06.670 --> 00:02:10.840
And 35 cents is not the same as 28 cents.
00:02:12.140 --> 00:02:14.390
Answer choice b is not possible.
00:02:15.450 --> 00:02:16.890
Let’s hope c works.
00:02:17.710 --> 00:02:29.010
One-quarter equals 25 cents plus three pennies — one cent plus one cent plus one cent.
00:02:30.160 --> 00:02:33.030
That means 25 plus three.
00:02:33.780 --> 00:02:36.520
25 plus three equals 28.
00:02:37.530 --> 00:02:42.500
If you had one-quarter and three pennies, you would have 28 cents.
00:02:43.350 --> 00:02:46.970
And 28 cents is equal to 28 pennies.
00:02:48.570 --> 00:02:53.540
One-quarter and three pennies is the same as 28 cents.
