Consider the dollar to be the page of a book. A 400-page book might be 1-inch thick. Print on both sides, so…. . – 1-inch book = $200. – Assuming 1 foot to be about 10 inches = $2000. – 1 mile = 5000 feet = $10,000,000. – 100 miles = 1 billion dollars – 100,000 miles = half the distance to the moon – 100,000 miles = 1 trillion dollars AND THE DISTANCE TO THE MOON? About 186,000 miles.
