Homework Help: math

Posted by Serpentlord123 on Monday, December 17, 2012 at 6:32pm.

You offer to do the dishes for your family for the next month.This month has only 31 days. You suggest that they can pay you in one of three ways:

A. $0.50 each day.(I already did this;=$15.50 a month.
B.$0.10 the first day,$0.20 the second day,$0.30 the third day,and so on.
C.$0.01 1st day,$0.02 2nd day,$0.04 3rd day,doubling each time.

Which rate of pay would be best for you?

Comments
I already know the 1st and 2nd choices,but to calculate the 3rd one one by one seems a bit overrated.
So...I was wondering if there is a sort of pattern for doubling like in the third choice?
Thanks,
