250,573,689,618 Wow! I think that reads two hundred fifty trillion, five hundred seventy three billion, six hundred eighty nine thousand, six hundred and eighteen. How long would it take to search them all?

Assuming you can search 1 per second, which is way to fast anyways. 7945.64 years. And by then you will have many more trillions of cents to deal with.

Whew! reminds me of the deficit. If you averaged 1 1/3 doubled dies in every 23 1/2 rolls, how many doubled dies would you find?

According to googling the average amount of bricks to make a house: ~5,500-10,000 you can make ~13364 houses with the 100,229,475 $25 boxes of cents and then sit down to enjoy roll hunting the remaining 2118 cents.

So how did I figure this out? I took the information from the Red Book, entered it into excel and used the auto sum feature. (I had a 2008 Red Book) That took about 3+ hours. So when I get the rest of the numbers, I can add to that list to find the current totals. 276 lines to get there. Bummer just found a couple errors. Re-checked all new total= 438,516,828,339

In case anyone was wondering, with the updated information:

$4,385,168,283.39 in cents

1 cent per second = ~13,905.3 years to go through them all

~23,387 houses with ~5,500-10,000 bricks per house can be made from 175,406,731 $25 cent bricks with 839 cents left over to roll hunt through.

It wasn't too bad. about 4 hours of work. 3 to list it in excel and 1 to recheck my work. Now I just need the rest of the figures and then I can add them to the excel totals.
