wow that is kinda odd look at erlier post and you will see that 5368709.12 plus all the other days also equals 10737418.24

but that still does not change the fact that he said the wrong answer in the original post but he probably will edit it now so here is what he said originaly

10,737,417

Most calculators will work 2x.01 with = hit 30 times.
.01 x 2 won't do it.

Your "proof" has 30 lines, but only 29 operations. You're missing one, sparky.

aha but it does not multiply the 30th day for on the 30th day it is the last day and therefore the night of its mulitiplication shall never come and your
trying to disprove me with logic has turned around

it does not multiply becuase 2 to the fourth power has three multiplication symbols if you right it out


ps: I know I am being stubborn and I am sorry

Still....the = sign hit 30 times gets to my answer.
10.7 was the answer when I first read about it.

The fable version has to do with a pauper that helps a king. The king offers some gold. The pauper asks for a measure of salt doubled for each square on a chess board. The king agrees (not thinking) and the pauper bankrupts the kingdom. Salt will eventually become worth more than the dollar someday.

I think this is the formula that FSM uses for tithing.

And, if you write it out properly, 1x2^4 has four multiplications.

2^30 has 29, 1x2^30 has 30. Your first line is the 1x.

You're still missing one, sparky.

Still....30 hits of the = sign gets you to 10.7. No one questions this.
They will pay up.

Arrrrrrrgh...RUM!
The smoke wafted gently in the breeze across the poop deck and all seemed right in the world.
