did you mean, 1 penny the first day, 2 the second, 4 the third, 8 the fourth? that is how you'll get 10million in a month

Penny A Day Myth needs to be solved!?
If you square one you get one and would have 30 cents at the end of the month.
The rule is to double the amount each day.
1st day one cent
2nd day 2 cents
3rd day 4 cents
4th day 8 cents
and so on until the 30th day.
On the 30th day you would receive 536870912 pennies and would accumulate a total of $10,737,418.23
The origin of the story, if you have a minute, is in antiquity.
The version I remember is a Brahman priest in India taught a maharajah the game of chess. The maharajah was so impressed, that he offered to grant the priest any wish he wanted. The priest asked for one grain of rice for the first square on the chessboard, two for the second, and so on to the 64th square on the board. The maharajah agreed, but as the story goes it is thought that the priest probably lost his head before the 30th square was reached.
I guess I should tell you
The number of pennies received on the 30th day = 2^29
The number of pennines accumulated = 2^30 -1
a penny a day doubled everyday for 30 days.?
I am 67 years old and I heard this when I was a kid. It starts out"I will pay you a penny for the first day you work and I will double it every day for a month" Most people would say no way, but when it is added up it is $5,368,709,.12 for a 30 day month
It is $10,737,418.24 for a 31 day month.
