# How Many Decades Are in a Century?

## Answer: There are ten decades in a century.

**Explanation: **

We know that in a decade, there are 10 years.

We also know that in a century there are 100 years.

Hence, if we try to find the decades in a century (100 years), we get:

1 decade = 10 years

? decades = 100 years

Thus, simplifying it further, we get:

10 decades = 100 years = 1 century.
