    Because when you go inHe is getting one cent on the first day multiply that by 3 and you get three cents. multiply that by 3 ND YOU GET 9 CENTS on the second day. The process is your multiplying the amount of money you got on the day before by 3. And eventually it adds up more then 100,000,000. So he would be getting more money going with the second choice

    But wouldn't I have to move the decimal place over one since pennies are not the same value as dollars?
