Dicey multiplication  
Brain Warmup  By R. Andrew Lamonica 
Problem: 
What is the answer to this generalgeekknowledge based multiplication problem.
For purposes of clarity all numbers should be rounded to the nearest integer
before multiplying them. The sum of any two opposite sides on a 6sided die * Smallest prime number greater then a dozen * # of decimeters in a meter * # of days in the 2100AD calendar year * # of planets closer to the Sun then the Earth * # of US Dollars represented by a bill with Lincoln’s face on it * # of “permanent” Security Council members in the UN * # of thirds of the Earth’s surface covered by ocean * Pi * Acceleration of gravity at sealevel in meter/sec/sec = ? 
Solvers: 

Solution: 
Sum of opposite sides of a 6sided die = 7 Smallest prime number greater then a dozen = 13 # of decimeters in a meter = 10 # of days in the 2100AD calendar year = 365 (not a leap year because of the 100 year rule) # of planets closer to the Sun then the Earth = 2 (Mercury & Venus) # of US Dollars represented by a bill with Lincoln’s face on it = 5 # of “permanent” Security Council members in the UN = 5 (China, France, Russia, UK, and US) # of thirds of the Earth’s surface covered by ocean = 2 (71% is ocean) Pi rounded to one digit = 3 Acceleration of gravity at sealevel rounded to the nearest meter/sec/sec = 10 Product = 996450000
