Since you’re using currency in specific denominations to post your question, then no. There’s no such thing as a “smaller penny.” You can’t cut a penny in half and hand it to,the clerk at the register when leaving the store, even though we can account for fractional pennies in spreadsheets

In this example "pennies" is a dimensional unit. 

2 pennies + 6 pennies = 8 pennies keeps the unit consistent.

6 pennies /2 = 3 pennies is also unit consistent

1/2 * 6 pennies = 3 pennies   

You can't have "smaller" pennies, because "penny" is a unit of a defined size,  and  it is the smallest unit of currency (in the US).

Agreed...

So if our 100 pennies = 1 dollar...

Does 6 *$1.00.00 "one dollar and zero cents" mean $6.00.00 ??

six dollars and zero cents?

The currency is a chosen system, but numbers are numbers??

Im totally confused..

So on top of not uderstanding 2+6 = 8 you are having problems with understanding 3 = 1/2 * 6 ?
My kid is not 5 years old yet, we will be using this thread for exercise reference before bath tonight (I'm dead serious, no sarcasm)

ahahaha :) :) :):) 

something came to my ming like : to divide a penny from a point over its boundary along its diameter  (maybe via hammer).:) :) :)

Is this as 2 pennies plus 6 pennies is 8 pennies??

Maybe a picture helps you understand Janus answer? 2 pennies plus 6 pennies equals 8 pennies:

could we also say 6/2 = 3 pennies

It seems like 6 pennies split equally means 3 pennies each:

That does not seem like a reasonable conclusion in this context. As Janus said, units will not be consistent if you do something like:

Yes, you are !
Most accurate thing you've said, so far.

Does the same apply for pennies as to atoms? Oh I forget its not atoms we measure but "matter material" thats "some how" is massless unless gravity effects it...😎 Thank god for Galileo..

If there is an equal amount of 1/2  fractions of pennies, they can be "glued" together to make them whole again..

"How About That?"

12 "one halves" of 1 penny

As

6 10ths of a "deci meter" of 1 second

""Six Tenths""

Again, How about that??

""Thanks For The Image"""

Then they are not pennies, they are mutilated coins, a change of units.
