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?
