Calculate the number of sheets of paper in a carton and multiply that by 6. You get 30,000. That is the number of bills you can carry. There are only 7000 $100 bills available, so you still have room for 23,000 bills. If you use twenties in the remaining space, you can carry an additional $460,000. So you will have no problem fitting in the additional $300,000 needed, if most are twenties.
