 Subject: Math Problem Name: Bob Who are you: Other $380 Billion divided by Iraq population of 29.6 million equals$_____ / Iraqi.

Hi Bob,

It depends on whose billions you mean. In the American system a billion is 1,000,000,000 and in the British system a billion is 1,000,000,000,000. Thus you divide $380,000,000,000 or$380,000,000,000,000 by 29,600,000 depending on where you live.
