A piece of notebook paper is about 0.0032 inch thick. If you begin with a stack consisting of a single sheet and double the stack 25 times, how tall will the stack be in inches? How tall will it be in feet? (Hint: Write and solve an exponential equation to find the height of the stack in inches. Then use unit analysis to find the height in feet.
a. h = 2^25sheets * 0.0032in/sheet =
b. h = 107,374.1824 / 12 = 8947.85 Feet.
