4. A traveling salesman (selling shoes)stops at a farm in the Midwest. Before he could knock on the door, he noticed an old truck on fire. He rushed over and pulled over a young lady out of the flaming truck. Farmer Crane came out and gratefully thanked the traveling salesman for saving his daughter's life. Mr.Crane insisted on giving the man a award for his heroism.

So, the salesman said,"If you insist, I do not want much.Get your checkerboard and place one grain on the first square. Then place two grains of wheat on the next square. Then place four grains on the third square. Continue this until all 64 sqaures are covered with grains of wheat." As he had just harvested his wheat, Mr. Crane did not consider this much of an award, But he soon realized he made a miscalculation on the amount of wheat involved.

a)How much wheat would Mr.Crane have to put on the 24th square?
Show work in this space:

b)How much total grain would the traveling salesman have to receive if the checkerboard only had 24 squares?
Show work in this space:

c) Calculate the amount of wheat neccessary to fill the whole checkerboard(64 squares)How much wheat would the farmer need to give the salesman? Please provide the answer in either scientific notation, or calculate and show all 20 digits.

We are not going to do homework or tests for you. What would that accomoplish?

We will be happy to critique your work. One question per post, please

e) What observation can you make about the successive partial sums of this sequence(HINT: It would be beneficial to find a few more sums like the sum of the first 2 then the first 3, etc.)
