    If you have a calculator, you can try entering '1' then hitting x2 a bunch of times (counting how many times you do so.)

    Of course, that will only get you the per day earnings. You'll have to add up all the previous days' to get the total.

    Let x be the amt u earn per day... Then, in 1 day: 1cent = 2^0 cents 2 days: 2 cents = 2^1 cents 3 days: 4 cents = 2^2 cents 4 days: 8 cents = 2^3 cents... So, in n days, you get 2^(n-1) cents

    Thus, in 7 days: 2^(7-1)=2^6=64 cents

    on day \(n\) you earn \(2^{n-1}\) pennies, for a total of \(2^n-1\) pennies
