 Question 53682: i have a word problem it is the U.S. tresury first printed paper money in 1862. The paper money we use today is 0.0043 inch thick. Estimate the number of bills you would need to stack to make a pile that is 1 inch thick. If you stacked \$20 what would be the total value of the money in pile? Answer by stanbon(69061)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! The paper money we use today is 0.0043 inch thick. Estimate the number of bills you would need to stack to make a pile that is 1 inch thick. Let "x" be the number of bills needed. EQUATION: 0.0043x=1 x=1/0.0043= 232.558... Rounding up you get x=233 bills ------------- If you stacked \$20 what would be the total value of the money in pile? \$20(233)=\$4660 Cheers, Stan H.
