Edmil's Coin Math, Scribepost October 13, 2009

Coin Math

Mr. Harbeck asked us to answer how many coins would be in a jar of $100 with no loonies and toonies.

Part 1

1) What graph would be best to display the data?

I think the best way to display the data is by using bar graph.

2) How many coins are there in the jar?
There is probably more than 1000 coins in the jar if its all 1 cents, 5 cents, 10 cents, 25 cents.

Part 2

3)How long would it take if you put a single coin everyday starting on January 1, 2010?
I think it would take almost 8 months.


  1. good job edmil! but it need more detail and probably, a picture.

  2. for question no.1 why do you think bar graph is the best way to display a data?and im not really sure what you are talking about on question 1.
    and for question no. 2 what makes you say it's probably more than one thousand?
    and for question no.3 why do you think it would take 8 months to fill in the jar..

    you need to be more specific...and tell as how you got your answers..
