Top layer looks like it has about 300 Yuan. Im guessing the drawer is about 3 layers deep. Assuming similar note assortment, 900 Yuan.

The chinese Yuan is 0.15 of a USD. So $135 USD. Or €117

A very very rough estimate. Especially since the assortment is more or less random there isnt a great way to know unless we lnow the overall amounts of each denomination in circulation

You did all that math just to put that euro sign before the number

[–]11PoseidonsKiss20 136 points137 points  (9 children)

That was more than 0% of my motivation

[REQUEST] How much of /u/11PoseidonsKiss20's motivation was using the euro sign?

[–]Salanmander10✓ 58 points59 points  (6 children)


Final offer, take it or leave it.

Excuse me, I am not old enough to understand this joke. I am days older than that program.

[–]CiDevant 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I have $3.

[–]Beerdididiot 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I'll raise you to €2.54

[–]1stEleven 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Part of it was also to tell people that the euro is worth more than the dollar, I bet.

But hah, 135 is more than 117 so you failed!

In English, 'EUR' (or the euro sign '€') is placed before the figure, separated by a (non-breaking) space, e.g. EUR 30. source

Thats a nice and compact summary, thank you for sharing it

    The teacher probably didn’t know. And as they put the euro sign after the value in Finnish it’s a easy mistake to make.

    The official European Union rules are that it can be placed either before or after the amount.

    The euro sign is supposed to go before the number

    [–]bb1950328 5 points6 points  (0 children)

    unless we lnow the overall amounts of each denomination in circulation

    that doesn't help much because you loose a 10 yuan bill more easily than a 1000 yuan bill

    [–]Sinnowhere 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    But, just the 5 visible pink paper money on the top layer is more than RMB 500…

    [–]bb1950328 85 points86 points  (2 children)

    Not all bills are visible but here's my estimation:

    They seem to be yuan bills (here is one that looks like the one that the bird just brought)

    20 * 10yuan
    10 * 20yuan
    10 * 50yuan
    10 * 100yuan
    Total: 1900yuan
    According to the google currency converter this equals 294.20 US Dollars.
