Problem of the Day Problem of the Day Computation Money next 20 - 21
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: $400 400 multiplied by $1 = $400 $.10 6000 multiplied by $.10 = $600 $.01 50,000 multiplied by $.01 = $500 6000 Dimes next
