Alejando cuts sheets of paper to make ballots.

1 cut = 2 Ballots

2 cut = 4 Ballots

3 cut = 8 Ballots

4 cut = 16 Ballots

5 cut = 32 Ballots

AND SO ON...

From this you can get the equation: y=2^n

Say that a stack of 250 sheets of paper is 1 inch high. How high would a stack of ballots be after 20 cuts?

How many cuts would Alejandro need to make to have a stack of ballots 1 foot high?

Thanks
