You can't tell how many dollars you have from the information given. 

 

You can, however, tell how many dollars worth of stamps you have. 

 

50 x 20¢ is the same as 50 x 0.20 $.     Do you see what I did there? 

                                                              $0.20 is just another way to write 20¢. 

 

50 x $0.20 = $10.00     You have ten dollars worth of stamps.
