None, because then the piggy bank would no longer be empty.

Wrong... sorry :)

Assuming optimal packing, 2628.

"less than 6000".
you said so yourself. i win.
I was inclined to believe henk at first glance...but there are variables.
What if you put in a roll of pennies. well then more than one went in at once, so I have to be right.

Also, he he he, you're a credit risk??

By my calculation, an American penny has an approximate volume of 1.4 millilitres. A 1-quart container, therefore, could contain approximately 682 pennies.

Well technically Henk is correct, but j'bob has proved his point and both have won :)

Of course, it was implied that these 682 pennies were on a roll together...

I still think my answer was correct, lol. If you put the equation in a computer program, it would fail the loop/if then, or whatever else there is by putting just 1 in, I would believe. oh well, that would've meant I would've just won the 5k I put in the pot, =P

it all depends on the size of the piggy bank :p
