### Would a trunk of nickels be worth more or the same as a half a trunk of dimes?

The volume of a dime is roughly half the volume of a nickel, so any specific number of dimes would take up about half as much space as the same number of nickels*. In other words, a half a trunk of dimes would have at least the same number of that coin as a full trunk of nickels. However each dime is worth twice as much so the half-trunk of dimes would be worth more. * Because dimes are smaller they'd be able to pack somewhat more tightly than nickels so you could probably get slightly more dimes into the half-trunk. However that doesn't affect the answer; it simply means the half-trunk would be worth even more.

It is not the same because when you are taking 1.5 (one and a half) of a number, you are taking part of a number. when you divide the same number by 1.5 (one and a half) you are finding how many times 1.5 (one and a half) can fit inside the number. EXAMPLE: Taking or Finding 1.5% of a number 1.5%=0.15 0.15x25= 3.75 Dividing # by 1.5 25/1.5=16.6666667 see, two very different answers
