    F(n) = 2^n -1 for n =number of days F(n) = total amount of money earned F(n) = 2^(n-1) for n= number of days F(n) = money earned that day

    I dont think that is right... day 3 says 0.08 but if I use that function 2^(3-1)=4, not what the question said it should be, 0.08...

    Thats still not right though. 2^(n-1) 2^5-1 = 2^4=16/100=2.58224 not the answer they provided
