1. How much money is in half of jar?

- if a full jar got \$100 if u half/divide it in to 2, the answer will be 50. 50/100 or 100 ÷ 2.

2. How many differents ways can you get \$100?

- there alot of ways you can get \$100, here some ways to get \$100. by getting 400 \$.25 (400 x .25), or get 1000 \$.1 (1000 x .1)
Part 2 : Jar of Coins

How much is the jar is filled with Canadian coin?
- if using canadian coins the jar will be filled by about 35%.
Could you fill the jar with \$100 american and \$100 canadian?Why?
-No, if you put \$100 american and \$100 canadian coins on the jar it will have an extra 104 coins (10%). {75% + 35% = 110%}.
If you started droping coins on the jar on January 1, 2010, what daywould you finsh filling up the jar with \$canadian and \$american.
- if you keep dropping 1 coin every day it will take you until January 15, 2013. (780 + 370 = 1150) {1150 ÷ 365.25 = 3.15(round to hundredths)}
