**MathMate**, Friday, April 15, 2011 at 10:20amMake a list:

week time cumulative time(seconds)

1....1........1

2....2........3

3....4........7

4....8.......15

5...16.......31

6...32.......63

.......

10..512.....1023

....

20.524288...1048575

....

If you check the numbers, you will find that the number of seconds of homework for week "n" is 2^(n-1).

With a calculator in hand, it won't be long for you to find out that after the 16th week, the student will spend the whole week, day and night, doing homework.
