Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Of course, that will only get you the per day earnings. You'll have to add up all the previous days' to get the total.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Let 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^(n1) cents
