This is what 15 billion dollars looks like
You sure that is 15 billion, looks more like 15 million lol
Yeah I agree with jlevy73 its a crapload of money but a billion would need to double or triple that stack. But that's just what I think.
nope its not 15 billion. i feel like a loser, but i counted (roughly)....assuming that those are bundles of 50 $100 like the bands say its 5000 and looks like roughly 50 per bundle to me, each stack is roughly 12 bundles high. and its roughly 9 stacks deep and about 3 stacks wide. so 9x3=27 stacks (roughly) 27x12 high=324 bundles. 324x5000=1,620,000. and thats just the layered part, not including the stuff on top. lol i feel smart

which is 100,000,000
and since im bored i did some math lol:
to get 1 billion, you need 10,000,000 $100 bills
after some looking i found that a stack of 100 bills is 1 cm thick (.39 inches)
so thats 10,000,000 cm tall. which is 3,940,000 in
thats 328,333.33 repeating feet tall.
for ease of numbers we'll call it 328,333 feet
thats 62.18 miles (rounded)
so if you were to take 1 billion dollars, of $100 bills and stack it straight up. it would be 62.18 miles tall...thats a lot of money, i cant imagine if i used $1 bills lol
if someone is just as bored as i am, and wants to check my math feel free and tell me where i messed up lol
