A Quirky Way to do Maths!
Humphrey Young, who has more than 2 lakh followers on Tiktok, has gained fame on the video-sharing social media platform for creating easy-to-decipher financial literacy videos.
To get an idea of the wealth garnered by Bezos, the Silicon Valley freelancer used a single grain of rice to represent $100,000. He then went on to count 10 rice grains to depict $1 million. Following that he counted 10,000 grains by hand to represent $1 billion. In his first video he can be seen comparing the amount of rice grains to the cost of a Lamborghini and a home in California.
As the first video gained popularity, he came up with another one to show how much rice by weight would be required to count up to the total wealth of the Amazon CEO which was at the time $122 billion. It took him rice weighing 26 kilos approximately to count up to that amount. He can be seen inserting a keyboard in the pile of rice to show the users the depth of the pile of rice! He can also be seen comparing the cost of a new house Bezos bought in L.A. for $145 million and then showing how much Bezos still has in his account.
