Genaro is offered a weekly salary of $2000. Instead, Genaro makes the following counteroffer, "Pay me just one penny the first week, two pennies the second week, four pennies the next week, and so on. Doubling my salary each week."

Question 1 says to fill in a table of values for the different salary options.. and this is what I have:

Code:

Week # Salary option 1 Total cumulative salary option 1
1 2000 2000
2 2000 4000
3 2000 6000
4 2000 8000
5 2000 10,000
6 2000 12,000
7 2000 14,000
8 2000 16,000
9 2000 18,000
10 2000 20,000
15 2000 30,000
20 2000 40,000
25 2000 50,000
X 2000 (Unsure what goes here for X

Code:

Week Salary 2 Cumulative salary for option 2
1 .01 .01
2 .02 .03
3 .03
4 .04
5 .05
6 .06
7 .07
8 .08
9 .09
10 .10
15 .15
20 .20
25 .25
X ????

Am I correct in adding .4 pennies to the .3 pennies, because he wants it to add more each week? .. Can someone help me figure out how many pennies goes in each slot by week? : <

I'm not necessarily looking for straight up answers.. but an explanation on how to get them..

..Then I have to set up a function which gives the cumulative weekly salary for Week#X for both of the salary options.. I'm not sure how to go about trying to set up my functions..
