Actually it is 2^n - 1 or 2^30 - 1 = 1,073,741,824 - 1 = 1,073,741,823 pennies, but who's counting? (1,073,741,823 divided by 100 = $10,737,418.23. That's almost eleven million dollars!)

My head hurts so let's move on: What relation to you is your aunt's daughter? (Easy one)

sorry disregard the plus one penny its 2 rasied to the 29, this is because the first day you start out with one penny, now the second day you have two pennies. How many days remain? 29 days. so then you would take 2 raised to the 29 power, . there you go buddy

Nope sorry ur wrong, anyways heres a new riddle


anyways heres the new one

made iit up me-self :)

I'm called by three letters
Though I have a long name.
I'm in all of you,
But I'm never the same.

I'm all coiled up
So that I am quite small,
But if you stretch me out
I'll be really tall.

I could be the root
Of certain disease;
If man can unlock me
He'll solve many mysteries.

It's DNA! (Biology AP does come in handy sometimes. There's over 2m of DNA coiled up in every cell!)

I don't have a riddle, so anyone who wants to post one, go right ahead! :)

Nope sorry ur wrong


My dad, the nationally accredited math teacher says....

*drumroll*

Major Payne is correct.

The sequence S30=1(1-230)/1-2

Simplifies to S30=230-1=1,073,741,824 PENNIES divided by 100 = $10,737,418.23




So there! :)
