Would you rather have $10,000 or a stack of pennies 10 miles high? After you make your choice, figure out the value of the stack of pennies.

  • Math - ,

    1 mile = 5,280 feet

    1 feet = 12 inch

    1 mile = 12 * 5280

    1 mile = 63,360 inch

    10 miles = 10 * 63,360

    10 miles = 633,600 in

    The thickness of a penny = 0.061 in

    In 10 miles you have:

    633,600 / 0.061 = 10386885.2459 pennys

    Value of 1 penny = 0.01 $

    10386885.2459 pennys =

    10386885.2459 * 0.01 = 103,868.852459 $


    stack of pennies 10 miles high = 103,868.852459 $

    Or approximately :

    stack of pennies 10 miles high = 103,869 $

  • Math - ,

    By the way it is impossible to make stack of pennies 10 miles high.

    Mount Everest is 5.499053 miles high.

    doesn't mean it can't be done. Just put 'em in a 10-mile tube...
