Default Double A Penny A Day Equation

What Is The Equation You Would Use If You Wanted To Figure Out How Much Money You Would Have If You Started On Day One With A Penny, And Doubled Every Day For 365 Days

Ie, Day 1 = 1 Penny, Day 2 = 2 Penny, Day 3 = 4 Penny, Day 4 = 8 Penny

Our Gay Low Boy Driver Is Trying To Figure It Out In Excel, I Know Somewhere In My Cloudy Rememberance Of College There Is A Way To Figure That Out With An Equation, But I'm Pretty Sure I Have Sinse Then Killed Those Brain Cells

Besides, If I Fall On Hard Times I Will Just Go To Uncle Otis For A Loan!

GL- WE DID THE EXCEL SHEET AS WELL, I COULD SWEAR THERE IS ANOTHER WAY, WHERE IS CIGDAZE?

THe game of chess was sold to an Egyption king, long ago. The "inventor" asked for one grain of wheet, per square times the next square times the previous square. Geometric progression. After the king has agreed for the payment, next day he was shocked that all his silos and storage of wheet/wealth was carted away for payment.

I ciounted my wealth this morning, and I was done before I finished this sentence.

It's an exponential growth function.

y = 2^(x-1) where x is the day - starting with 1 penny on day 1 - and y is the number of pennies you would have on that day.
