March 29, 2016

Many of us have have heard, and perhaps even fallen for, the classic teaser: "Which is heavier: a ton of bricks or a ton of feathers?"

Now let's try something a little more difficult:

Which is WORTH more: a pound of quarters or a pound of dimes?

According to their coin specification webpage, a dime weighs 2.268 grams, and a quarter weighs 5.670 grams.

453.592 grams = 1 pound.

## The Results:

One pound of dimes is 199.9624070 dimes. That's 200 dimes, which is exactly \$20.

One pound of quarters is 79.998589 quarters. That's 80 quarters, which is exactly \$20.

That's right, a pound of quarters is equal in value to a pound of dimes.
