Woo hoo a question I actually have an answer for: Tennessee was the 16th State to join the Union and they joined in 1796. The only reason I know this is there is a state history plaque in the office I am in.

My question is: How many pennies (U.S. currency) would it take to go around the world?

By US penny do you mean cent? And I assume by round the world you mean around the earth at the equator? I am also assuming you mean laid next to each other. (Or do you mean how many would you have to part with to go round the world?)
If these assumptions are correct then I am guessing (?) 1,183,343,040

I used google to get all the figures. Got circumference of earth at the equator as 24,902 miles. Got the diameter of a penny (cent) as 0.75 inch. Worked out there are 63,360 inches in a mile, which would mean 47,520 pennies in a mile and multiplied that by 24,902 miles and got 1,183,343,040 pennies around the earth.

Edit: Oops .. just noticed an anomoly. If there are 63,360 inches in a mile and a penny is .75 inch then there should be more pennies than inches in a mile! Got my calc wrong (multiplied when I should have divided). Try again ... 63360/0.75 equals 84,480 pennies in a mile, multiply by 24,902 miles would give 2,103,720,960 pennies around the earth.

Close enough?
