106 billion sticky notes can cover all of Chicago

I like overly blue water caps

Precisely it would take 105,714,892,800 sticky notes to cover every square inch of Chicago. How did I come with that?

3 inch x 3 inch sticky note

63,360 inches per mile

63,360/3=

It takes 21,120 stickies lined up to cover one linear mile.

21,120*21,120=

446,054,400 stickies cover one square mile.

Chicago is 237 square miles of land.

446,054,400*237=

105,714,892,800 sticky notes to cover Chicago.

I was thinking that every time I place a sticky note, how much of Chicago do I cover? 0.000000000945940514% of Chicago. I think that’s right. Correct me if my 3:30am math is wrong.
