How thick is a pile of paper?

Find a relationship between the number of folds and the number of layers. Note your observations.

Number of folds Number of layers

0 1

1 2

2 4

3 8

4 14

5 23

Plz help im so stuck on this question

Are you sure 4 14 and 5 23 are copied right?

If so I don't see any relationship.

i checked that again and got the answer

0-1, 1-2, 2-4, 3-8, 4-16, 5-32, 6-64

Notice the number 2: for each fold, 2 is multiplied.

one fold 2

two folds 2x2

three folds 2x2x2

four folds 2x2x2x2

five folds 2x2x2x2x2

six 2x2x2x2x2x2
