Here is what 100 dollars looks like. Probably everyone has seen one of these. Some of you have even been lucky enough to own one or two
The 100 dollar bill is the largest denomination currently in circulation.
If you take one hundred 100 dollar bills and put them together you will get the standard hundred dollar stack. You’ve probably seen it in the movies a thousand times. This stack of 100 dollars is less than 1/2 inches thick (1.2cm) and easily fits in your pocket. 10 000 dollars is a sum that most Americans find to be a very large sum. For the average American this is his income of 3 or 4 months.
10 000 dollars:
The following is what 1 million dollars looks like. It is a hundred packets of the $10 000 above. It doesn’t look like that much. You can easily fit it in a bag and walk around on the street without anyone noticing. It takes the average American 25 years to make that kind of money – and that is when he would never spend a dime of it. The truth is that most Americans have made 1 million dollars when they have worked for 25 years but they have also spent the same amount.
100 Million Dollars
While 1 million dollars didn’t look like much, it is a totally different thing with $100 million. It would take 2500 years for the average American to make that kind of money (unless you steal it :cool:).
As you see below, 100 million dollars fits perfectly on a standard pallet used for transporting cargo.
100 million dollars:
1 Billion Dollars
You can probably fit $100 million in a van but to transport 1 billion dollars you definitely need a bigger truck. It will take the average bloke 25 000 years to make that kind of money.
Now this is what I’m talking about!
1 billion dollars:
1 Trillion Dollars
This is the sum we have been hearing lately a lot in the news. It seems that billion is the new million and trillion is the new billion. A trillion dollars is also about as much as the bailout of the large banks cost to the government.
A trillion dollars is written with 12 zeros.
Here it is: $1 000 000 000 000
Oh and it would take the average American 25 million years to make that much money
