Who in Hedes taught the above person to perform math? Zeros are kind of important. Probably a liberal who calculated it. In the same way there's no comprehension between billions and trillions..."...gosh it's all just a lot of money anyways...". These yohos teach our highschoolers everything but science and math. Every time we go to a football game or a high-school play, it takes the person running the ticket booth (if they are a student) a 1/2 hour to count change from a \$20 and they are invariably incorrect. Teaching/learning Critical Race Theory (to feel guilty about their white skin) in volumes but can't even do math. Pathetic.

Because one penny weighs 0.006250lb or .002 Kilograms and the accuracy of the household scale is +/- 100th, then

If you are using Kilograms, then

Number of pennies +/- 100 = (Weight of your water jug in kilogram) / .002

If you are using pounds

Number of pennies +/- 100 = (Weight of your water jug in Pounds) / 0.006250

a fifty pound water jug full of pennies would have (50 / 0.00625 ) = 8000 pennies or \$800

a 50 Kilogram water jug full of pennies would have (50 / .002) = 25000 pennies or \$2500

All answers are rounded to the nearest dollar.
