He wants the The second choice because you are multiplying by three i believe.

But how would i figure out the process? How do you know the second one is better?

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
