A stack of nickels has a math of 45 grams. there are 9 nickels in the stack. what is the mass of 1 nickel

Accepted Solution

1 stack of nickels is S=45gm; given that there are 9 nickels on each stack you can divide the mass of the stack(45) by the number of nickels in a stack(9) to find the mass of 1 single nickel 

[tex] \frac{45gm}{9}=5gm [/tex] 

5gm = 1 nickel
