Problem of the Day Problem of the Day Computation Money next
Which money amount would you rather see someone give to your school? 400 dollar bills? 6000 dimes? 50,000 pennies? Explain your answer. Explain your answer. next
I need to find the most money amount to give to my school. I know that my choices are 400 dollar bills, 6000 dimes or 50,000 pennies. In order to solve this problem, I must find the dollar value for each money amount. Four hundred dollar bills would be $400 since one bill represents $1. Then 400 times $1 = $400. Six thousand dimes would be $600.
Since there are ten dimes in a dollar, I would multiply 6000 by $.10 = $600. Finally, 50,000 pennies would be $500. I would multiply 50,000 pennies by $.01 since there are 100 pennies in a dollar. The best choice for my school would be the 6000 dimes which would be equivalent to $600. It would make sense to take the 6000 dimes because the value amount of $600 is greater than $400 and $500.
Answer: $ multiplied by $1 = $400 $ multiplied by $.10 = $600 $.01 50,000 multiplied by $.01 = $ Dimes next
