Question

What is the mistake? Is it because question did not mention in dollars but in cents so answer must be in cents? 

1000 cents acceptable for the answer even when during examination?

Answer

$1 = 100 ¢

25¢ = $25/100 = $0.25

40 * $0.25 = $10

 

Alternatively,

40 * 25¢ = 1000¢ = $ 1000/100 = $10

So you should answer either 1000¢ or $10 but not 10¢.

I think you should just say $10.
