First of all, how many cents is a dime? It's 10 cents.

How many cents is a dollar? 100 cents.

So to find the fraction of a dime in a dollar.... make the dime (10 cents) the numerator and the dollar (100 cents) the denominator so...

dime/dollar or 10 cents/ 100 cents

By now you would see that 10/100 is the equivalent of 1/10 or 10%.

So.... one dime is 10%, 0.1, 1/10 or one tenth of a dollar.
