A nickel equates to 5 cents, while a dime equates to 10 cents.

So 3x5= 15 and 4x10 = 40.

15+40= 45

45 is an odd number.

3 nickels: 3 * 5 = 0.15

4 dimes: 4 * 10 = 0.40

0.40 + 0.15 = ?

Is that answer odd or even?

The even numbers are 2, 4, 6, 8, 10

The odd numbers are 1, 3, 5, 7, 9

0.40 + 0.15 = 0.45

Are you sure that 0.45 ends with an even number?
