I am going to lay out a row of pennies one mile long. How many pennies will I need?
Watch out. Here’s where math comes in:
A penny is 0.75 inches in diameter.
A mile is 5280 feet or 63,360 inches.
63,360 divided by 0.75 = 84,480 pennies to the mile.
By the way, that would be over 422 pounds of pennies. Can I get some help carrying those?
