You will need the following info to solve the problem:

You can cover a sheet of paper with 6 \$100 bills

There are 500 sheets of paper in 1 ream

There are 10 reams in 1 carton

Imagine that you have inherited \$1 million . The bank has only \$700,000 in \$100 bill. The bank gives you the rest of the money in \$20 bills and \$10 bills. Your suitcase will hold as much as 1 carton of paper.
Will \$1 million dollars fit in your suitcase?
Show all of your work. Explain what you did to solve the problem.

• Finance - ,

\$700 000 in \$100 bills = 7 000 bills

1 sheet of paper = 6 bills
1 ream = 500 sheets = 3000 bills
1 carton = 10 reams = 30 000 bills
Your suitcase can hold 30 000 bills , so far we only used space for 7000 \$100 bills.

for the remaining \$300 000 , you don't say how many 20's and how many 10'

worst case, all \$10's ....
then we would need 30 000 of these, not enough space.

suppose we take half in 20, and half in 10's
150 000/20 = 7500 bills
150 000/10 = 15000 bills,
15000 in tens + 7500 in 20's + 7000 in 100's = 29500 bills

that would work

Are you sure it did not specify how much in 20's and 10's ?
