May 23, 2017

$50 c$

Explanation:

$\frac{5}{10} = \frac{1 \times 5}{2 \times 5} = \frac{1}{2}$

So $\frac{5}{10}$ of one dollar is the same as $\frac{1}{2}$ of one dollar, ie $50$c.

$50 c e n t s$

Explanation:

$\frac{5}{10}$ of a dollar will be equal to $50 c e n t s$ because if we'll bring $\frac{5}{10}$ to it's lowest terms it will be equal to: $\frac{1}{2}$
which is half of anything, so, half of a dollar will be equal to $50 c e n t s$.
Verifying it:
$1 \mathrm{do} l l a r = 100 c e n t s$
Therefore,
$50 c e n t s \cdot 2 = 100 c e n t s$
$100 c e n t s = 100 c e n t s$
Hence, verified.
