August 2014

A generous millionaire decided to give some of his money away. He wants you to work on his farm every day for the month of July, but offers you two payment options. The first option is that he will pay you $100,000 every day. The second option is that he will pay you one penny on the first day and every day he will double what he gave you the day before. So, on the second day, he would give you two pennies; on the third day, he would give you four pennies, and so on. How much money would you have at the end of the month if you chose the better option?
