This weekend, we got assigned an assignment and we had to answer one purple question and either one red or blue question.
1) HOW MUCH MONEY IS IN THE JAR?- There is 100$ in American money in the jar.
2) WOULD THE JAR LOOK THE SAME IF IT WAS CANADIAN MONEY?
- No, because in Canada we have loonies and toonies, so there would be MORE coins in the jar. Also, It would be a bit more colourful, since our coins have different colours.
PART 2
HOW FULL IS THE JAR USING CANADIAN COINS?
Currently, the jar is fulled up 3/4. In American coins that means that the jar has 1280 coins in it. BUT, if you used Canadian coins instead, and the same size jar, it would look about 1/4 full. Why is that? The answer is that because there are 370 coins in the Canadian jar. 320 is one quarter. But there are 370 coins which is more than a quarter, so that's why the answer is that the Canadian jar would be filled 1/4 and a bit.
How high are the stacks of coins?
A penny = 2mm
2 x 50 = 100mm
A nickle = 3mm
3mm x 40 = 120mm
A dime = 1mm
1mm x 50 = 50mm
A quarter = 2mm
2mm x 40 = 80mm
A loonie = 3mm
3mm x 25 = 75mm
A toonie = 3mm
3mm x 25 = 75mm
