    You asked the right M/F.  I am always analyzing things on a math level.  I weighed a u.s currency note recently.  They all weigh exactly 1.00 grams per note.  There are 453.59 grams in a pound.  Let's deduct your answer using simple mathematics:  

    100 pounds of 1 dollar bills would equal 100 x 453.59 grams.  This equals 45,359 dollars.  

    1 pound of 100 dollar bills is 453.59 grams of notes; x that by 100 for value of each note.  This equals 45,359 dollars in value.  So answer is neither; according to basic mathematics.  The value of each example are equal.

    They both weigh the same.  That is a weight question, not a value question.

    Assuming all bills weigh the same, they have equal value.

    If a bill weighs one pound, the first is worth $100 and the second is also $100.

    If a bill weighs one ounce, the first is worth $1600 and the second is also $1600.

    And so on.

    Assuming the 100 is slightly bigger

    Then you get less of them

    So it’s the 1 dollar bills
