A billionaire offers to give you $3.7 billion if you will count out the amount in $1 bills or a lump sum of $7000. Assume that you can count at an average rate of one bill per second, and be sure to allow for the fact that you need about 10 hours a day for sleeping and eating. Which offer should you accept?

In order to answer this, how long will it take you to count out the $3.7 billion?

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Here the you work out working time in a day = (24-10)hrs = 14×60×60 seconds=50400sevonds


So for 1st scenario of 1 bill he will get 

3700000000÷50400= 73,412.698


For 2nd scenario he will get 3700000000÷7000=528,571. 42 


So he will go for the second offer as he will count more money

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
