In 2010, the population of the United States is about 281 million people. The national debt is 13.6 trillion dollars (one trillion is 1012). How much would each person have to contribute to pay off the debt?

13.6 trillion dollars = 13.6 * 10^12

281 million people = 281 * 10^6

Per capita debt = 13.6 * 10^12/281*10^6 = $48,398.58
