Gordon's Coin Math Oct 12/09

So we need to chose two questions about this jar of coins from a list of questions and answer them so here I go.

1. If you put one coin in a day how many days untill the jar is filled?

Well we know there is $100 in the jar now and thats not completely full but for the purpose of this question lets say $100 fills the jar everytime.

Pennies - 10,000 days
Nickles - 2,000 days
Dimes - 1,000 days
Quarters - 400 days
Lonnies - 100 days
Tonnies - 50 days

Now this jar is filled with American money but i felt the need to put every coin we have in canada.

2. Compared to your estimate how close were you to the $100?

Well based on the picture I felt there was about $60-75 in the jar only about $25 off from the correct amount of $100.

And those are the questions i chose to answer I hope they were informant and thank you for reading my blog, don't forget to comment.
