I'm going to estimate that there are 1e9 Apple users.

84,000 nickels = $4,200 and 750,000 yen = about $7500, so everybody gets around $1e4

This equates to $1e12 for the money held by all the Apple users.

Idk the conversion rate between Hryvnia and US dollars so I'll assume that its around 1e3 per dollar, which gives an answer of 1e15.

Fermi Answer: 15

- Correct Answer
588 million Apple users

84,000 nickels and 750,000 yen actually equates to $111,000.

The actual conversion rate is 27:1 RIP.

By equating everything you get an answer of 1.8e14.

Fermi Answer: 14

If you were to take all the water in Lake Michigan and set it over a regular campfire, how long would it take for the entire volume of water to change by 1 degree Celcius in seconds (assume that the water is heated equally throughout its volume)?

- Attempt
Assume volume is around 3 km so 18 cm. Assuming energy from a campfire/ sec is 6 cal per sec so 12

- Answer
Volume is correct. I can't find anything about energy from a fire but should be within 1

What is (plancks constant divided by Boltzmann's constant divided by avagados constant divided by gravitational constant divided by the elementary charge divided by speed of light)^2

Bonus: 1,000,000!

Edit: Scioly medals probably around 200 invites 6 medal per event, 47 medals (23 event 2 each 1 extra for ExDes) or 4E4 plus regionals/states/nats so probably 5

Edit 2: Actually not everywhere is like NY with most competitions having 6-10 medals so actually probably 4
