The prices make no sense if compared to our world. We see 1 apple sell for 4 bits, then in a different episode a bag of apples is 3 bits, then an apple pie is 2 bits. (Got these from the MLP wiki).
As for dividing the bit, the Super Squeezy episode refers to cents, which is reasonable enough. Even the name is fine, since “cent” just means “hundred” in Fancy.

If they did mean 1/3rd of a cent, I don’t know why they didn’t just use a fraction for that instead. Reads a lot more easily and prevents a ton of confusion. What doesn’t help is that they also added (dollar not cent). So this leans closer toward the understanding “I mean 33 cents (1/3rd of a dollar)”. If they didn’t mean that, then I don’t know what the hell’s going on. Though it would make this post @Nichtraucher and their follow up post math make sense.
As a matter of fact, the initial post that sparked all this @Iron Storm An average cherry is like .99 cents at a Food store. doesn’t make ANY sense if they DID mean a decimal of a cent. Because they may as well have said 1 cent ($0.01) flat if they did mean [nearly] a penny.
For the “fun” of it, I did the math again with better research.
To compare the cherry with hard values and current pricing, cherries are $5.54/lb. Average cherry weighs 3-7 grams (1 lb = 453.592 grams). You’d get about 64.79 cherries per lb. Using that pricing, it’s ~$0.0854 per cherry, which is 1 bit.
Using that, 10529.60 bits = ~$899.22 and 11371.97 = ~$971.16
And I’m realizing now, lord knows how they do portions of a bit since their currency is just a gold coin.

No, Nichtauer had it right and Iron Storm is the one off by 2 decimal places.
If 1 bit = 0.33 cents, then 11372 bits ≈ 3752 cents = $37.52
Read up on the story of Verizon Math. People get stupid confused when seeing a decimal number of cents. 0.33 cents is not the same thing as 0.33 dollars; there’s a factor of 100 separating them.

@Nichtraucher
To be fair, your math was off for 2. That answer was ~106060
Initial math here @Iron Storm with $0.33/b, it’s ~$3474.76 pre-tax and ~$3752.75 post tax value.
And now that I actually examined your math, @Nichtraucher, you kinda screwed up your values.
1 bit is .33c; 3 bits is = 0.99c (or $1).
300b = ~$100
3000b = ~$1000
9000b = ~$3000
@Nichtraucher You had 1 right but not sure how you got 2 wrong by 2 decimal placements. Simple multiplication (x3 because 3 cherries per $) is 105k and exact is ~106060
Nichtraucher

@Iron Storm
You didn’t read at all what else I wrote, did you? You read the first line and immediately went defensive.
A calculator doesn’t help if you aren’t feeding it the right equation to solve.
If your math were correct then riddle me this:
  1. how many cherries will you get for 11k bits if each cherry costs 3 bits
    and
  2. how many cherries will you get for 35k $ if each cherry costs .33 cents. (dollar not cent)
Spoiler 1) 3666 cherries. 2) 10.6 mil cherries.
Now explain to me again how 11k bits and 35k $ are of the same value.
Nichtraucher

@Iron Storm
Your math is WAY off there.
going with your assumption that 1 bit = .33 cents (times 3)
-> 3b = 1c (times 100)
-> 300b = 1$ (times 10)
-> 3,000b = 10$ (times 3 or 4)
-> 9,000b = 30$ or 12,000 = 40$.
So that bill is actually barely 40$. (I did some rounding with .99 = 1)
From this I get that Rarity went to the date with no money at all and intended to have me pay.

@Ciaran @Power Play
That’s what the heck I’m wondering. This is FAR too high

@Background Pony #AADC
hah
@Thrond
Nope. In Putting Your Hoof Down, a cherry was going to cost 1 bit, he countered with 10 bits, Flutter botched it for 12, and went way too over-priced when he said it’d be 20; then it sold for 2. This is a whole other level of coin pouch gouging.
That price plus others here https://youtu.be/ggcnrtRTQSI?t=153 Fluttershy The Doormat (Putting Your Hoof Down) | MLP: FiM [HD]
