    To make 8 inch tall column approximately 61 coins required.
    Given,
    Total one cent coins stacked on top of each other in a column = 50
    Height of column = 378 inches
    Approximate height of one coin = ( 50 / 378)
                                                        = 0.132 inches
    To make an 8 inches tall stack No of coins required will be:
    Number of coins required  = ( total height / height of one coin )
                       = ( 8 / 0.132 )
                       = 60.60
                        ≅ 61 coins
    To make 8 inch tall column approximately 61 coins required.
