How many folds?

Posted by: Jaime Faulkner on Monday, July 25, 2011 at 1:57:48 pm

Last week, we asked our Facebook Fans and you through the poll on our website:
"The average dollar bill is meant to take up to how many folds in each direction before it rips?"

The results:

  Answer choices:     Facebook Results:     Website Poll Results:  
500 25% 17%
1000 50% 28%
4000 25% 30%
8000 0% 23%

 

And the correct answer is:

4000 Folds!

Can you believe that? According to the United States Treasury, you can double fold (first forward, then backward) a bill up to 4000 times before it rips! The reason is because currency paper is 25% linen, making it rip-resistant.

I wonder if that number decreases if the bill has been washed!
