The day after Thanksgiving marks “Black Friday” and the official beginning of the holiday shopping season. If you’re stuck waiting in line, if you’ve ever been curious about the production of money (what materials are used, how many bills are made in a day, etc.), than check out our newest post on the Mathcad Blog, “Mathcad and the Production of Currency”!
This post is all about the production of “paper” American currency and shows how Mathcad can be used to conduct calculations to determine the weight of a dollar bill, and the amount of resources necessary to produce enough money every day and year. I invite you to read this blog post, out-do my calculations, and come up with some new creative facts surrounding currency, using Mathcad.
