If I have 50 20c stamps, how much dollars do I have altogether?

for some reason these types of questions confuse me

*If I have 50 20c stamps, how much dollars do I have altogether?*

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.
