How many dollar bills would you have to stack to reach the moon? Would that be a cheaper way to get there than building and launching a spacecraft (which costs a few billion dollars)?

With that 3.5 trillion dollars, we could launch over 7.5 THOUSAND shuttles into space!

I think somewhere during shop caroling problem 29 s o. This problem asked us to figure out our estimate. How many dollar bills would be after stack on top of each other to reach? Okay, so let's estimate how thick enough it would be. You could do this easily by just taking a stack of some bills and measuring it in. Divided by Hammond. Bill starts there, so we usually get the thickness of one. Millimetres is about right. So if we want to Europe, how many girls it will take to be in comes in thickness equals distance to the moon. Okay, So a number of bills, then, is distance over thickness. Then this becomes the distance. Which is we looking up in the appendix since the 0.8 times? 10 to the eight meters. Her to your 0.1? No. Um, you know her Poor Bill. Hurtin Bill's son. I wasn't clear there. My stock, 10 bills. I want to be with you. So 0.1 millimeter for each bill. Okay, now, Now, Mrs the millimeters. And this is in meters, so we gotta be ableto change this right? How many millimeters are there on the meter 1,000. Now, these will cancel out when we left that could meter beat Filipinos consider all those millimeters and left But bills and our units and this in a calculator consent to roughly for times 10 to the 12th. It feels so a lot. That is a four trillion. So, yeah, a lot of money. It probably shouldn't stacked bills to get there.
