My briefcase measures 17" by 12'" by 3.5". Can I fit one million dollars in bills in the case using legal denominations?(Must be in current U.S. Circulation) Bills Only. No checks. If I can fit the million, please show exactly how (layout etc...) If not, give the maximum amount of bills I could fit (its' value) and how (layout).

The largest denomination in US circulation is the $100 bill

A $100 bill is .0043 inches thick (.10922 mm), 6 inches wide (152.4 mm) and 2.5 inches tall (63.5 mm)

So the volume of one bill is (.0043) (6) (2.5) = .0645 in^3

And we need 10000 of these to make a million dollars

So....the volume of 10000 of these is of these is (10^4)(.0645) = 645 in^3

And the volume of your briefcase is (17)(12)(3.5) = 714 in^3

So.....you* could* (theoretically) fit all the money in your case

I leave the layout to you....!!!!!
