### Scribepost for October 11, 2009

For homework in math, we had to pick 2 questions that we brainstormed in class. We have to pick a purple question and a blue or red question.

1. How much do the coins in the jar add up to? The coins in the jar add up to \$100 in American currency.

2. If you share the \$100 with 10 people, how much does each person get?
If you share the \$100 with 10 people, each person gets \$10 each.
All you have to do is divide the \$100 into 10 and your answer should be 10.

1. a) Combination of USA coin in the jar (Reasonable).
40 rolls of pennies = 2000 coins = \$20.00
10 rolls of nickels = 400 coins = \$20.00
8 rolls of dimes = 400 coins = \$40.00
2 rolls of quarters = 80 coins = \$20.00
= \$100.00 = 2880 coins

b) Canadian Coin. (Use one roll for each coin).
In Canadian currency, the coins will change:
I have:
A roll of toonies = 25 in a roll = \$50.00
A roll of loonies = 25 in a roll = \$25.00
A roll of quarters = 40 in a roll = \$10.00
A roll of dimes = 50 in a roll = \$5.00
A roll of nickels = 40 in a roll = \$4.00
and lastly, A roll of pennies = 100 in a roll = \$1.00
= 280 coins all together.

2. How full is the jar?
The jar is about 75% percent full, in other words 3/4 of the jar is filled.
If the jar was filled with Canadian currency, it would be about 1/4 to 1/2 full because it has loonies and toonies and American currency doesn't.
