A US dollar bill is reportedly .0043 inches thick. Assuming the
same for a 100 dollar bill, a stack of 100 dollar bills totalling
one million dollars would be 43 inches tall. It takes 10,000 such
bills to equal a million dollars. 10,000 X .0043 = 43 inches.
Interestingly, using these measurements, a billion dollars would be
just over 3583 feet tall, and a trillion dollars would be just over
678.66 *miles* tall!

### How many hundred dollar bills in a trillion dollars?

One trillion dollars is represented as
$1,000,000,000,000. Divide that by the hundred dollar bill
($100). For those quick minded math people, you drop 2 zeros.
1,000,000,000,000 / 100 = 10,000,000,000 This means there
are TEN BILLION hundred dollar bills in a trillion dollars.
To put that in perspective, the US bill note is about .0043
inches thick. This stack of ten billion hundred dollar bills would
be 43,000,000 inches tall. That's three million five hundred
eighty-three thousand three hundred thirty-three feet tall. Hard to
grasp...scale it up to miles and you get a stack more than 678
miles tall. On it's side, that would be a continuous line of bills
stretching from Los Angeles, Ca nearly to Salt Lake City,
UT!

### How tall is one million dollars in one dollar bills?

According to the US Treasury, all current US bills are 0.10922
mm thick. Multiplying by 1 million moves the decimal point 6 places
to the right, so 1 million bills would be 109220 mm.
Converting to a more practical unit (again, just move the
decimal point - aren't SI units nice?!) that's 109.22 meters, or
about the size of a US football field including the end zones.
