### Elijah's Scribepost for October 10 2009

Red Question-
1. If the coins were stacked how tall would the stack be ?
( canadian ; pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters. I dont have american coins )

Pennies:

50 pennies = 26 inches

100 pennies= 52 inches
value : 1 dollar
( sorry i couldnt stack it in 100 pennies. it kept falling. )

Nickels:

20 nickels= 13 inches
value : 1 dollar

Dimes:

10 dimes: 4 inches
value- 1 dollar

Quarters:

4 quarters : 1 inch
value: 1 dollar

If the coins were stacked, it would be 1750 inches tall..

100 pennies
20 nickels
10 dimes
4 quarters
Total= 4 dollars

Pennies- 52 inches
Nickels-13 inches
Dimes-4 inches
Quarters- 1 inch
Total= 70 inches

4 dollars = 70 inches

4 x 25 = 100
70 x 25 = 1750 inches

Purple Question-
2. If you share the money with 10 people how much does everyone get?
Well, there's 100 dollars in the jar. If it's shared with 10 people, equally, everyone will get 10 dollars. Because 10/100 = 10.

Example:
each 10 people will get :

200 pennies = 2 dollars
60 nickels = 3 dollars
30 dime = 3 dollars
8 quarters = 2 dollars

equals- 10 dollars

( The empty space above, means the jar is not full. )

part 2-
re-make of the red question.
If the coins were stacked how tall would the stack be?

Pennies -

There is 50 pennies ^
1 penny- 2 mm

50 x 2 mm = 100 mm
50 pennies- 100 mm
value- 50 cents

Nickels -

There is 20 nickels ^
1 nickel- 3 mm

20 x 3 mm = 60 mm
20 nickels- 60 mm
value- 1 dollar

Dimes -

There is 10 dimes ^
1 dime - 1 mm

10 x 1 mm = 10 mm
10 dimes - 10 mm
value- 1 dollar

Quarters-

There is 4 quarters ^
1 quarter - 2 mm

4 x 2 mm= 8 mm
4 quarters- 8 mm
value- 1 dollar

Loonie -

There is 25 ^
1 loonie - 3 mm

25 x 3 = 75 mm
25 loonies - 75 mm
value- 25 dollars

Toonie -

There are 20 toonies ^
1 toonie- 3 mm

20 x 3= 60 mm
20 toonies - 60 mm
value- 40 dollars

Other Question:
How full is the jar using canadian coins ?

Using US coins- 1350 coins in the jar

Using Canada coins- 350 coins in the jar

1350/2 = 675
675/2 = 337.5

^ closer to 350.
