Question of the week: I'm stumped
Why are 1999 American dollar bills worth more than 1997 American dollars bills? This has to be put into a mathematical problem???
I have spent hours on this one and no ideas! I'm getting close to my deadline! Any help would be a great help!
The question is worded a little strangely which may be the clue. You are not asked why 1999 Americas DOLLARS are worth more than 1997 American DOLLARS, but rather why 1999 American DOLLAR BILLS are worth more than 1997 American DOLLAR BILLS. Didn't something happen recently to the American dollar bills that makes them more expensive to produce?
Here is a hint for a different solution.
