Distance from the moon= dm= 384,403km
A quarter diameter= dq= 2.3 cm= 0.000023km
No of quarters= 16,713,173, 913
To convert cm into km divide cm by 100 and then by 1000
as
1m= 100cm
1km= 1000m
Therefore
2.3/100= 0.023 m
And
0.023/1000= 0.000023 km
Dividing the distance from the moon by the diameter of the quarter laid end to end would give the number of the quarters needed.
No. of quarters= Distance from the moon/ Diameter of the quarter
= 384,403km/0.000023 km
= 16,713,173,913.043
Rounding 16,713,173,913.043 gives 16,713,173,913 quarters
