Kallie,
I don't know how to do the equation:
How many dimes are in $4+3/5? 
alg readiness 
Writeacher,
4.60/0.10 = ? <~~This means to divide 4.60 by .10

Helper,
Or, your could do,
Assuming you know that a dollar is 10 dimes, etc.
1.00 = 10 dimes
4.00 = 4 * 10 dimes = 40 dimes
0.60 cents = 6 dimes
4.60 = 40 dimes + 6 dimes
4.60 = ? dimes
