# Origami divide paper into US dollar

The US dollar bill measures approximately 6.6 cm x 15.5 cm, which is a 1:2.35 ratio. You can measure and cut the paper to the appropriate size. Or you can use the origami technique below to cut the square-shaped paper into pieces about the size of a US dollar bill. The size of the paper will have the same ratio as the dollar bill.

The scheme you will find below is more of a mathematical experiment, which will be curious to make with the kids of school age. It is kind of a magic, where you will not need a ruler to make up a perfect paper rectangle of the exact size. You will only need a piece of regular or origami paper, your hands, and a couple of minutes for this interesting craft. Shall we start?

You have gotten 3 rectangles out of your square paper. The first 2 rectangles are in the same approximate proportions as a US dollar.

Now you can use these 2 rectangular-shaped papers, similar to a dollar bill, to fold origami.
