Bit of Fun! Would you like to be a millionaire?

You have to decide which option to choose if…

(a) I offered to give you £1,000,000 in cash, tomorrow or…

(b) I offered to give you 1p today and the amount doubled for the next 28 days!

Write your posts below of which one you would prefer. The first person to calculate and post how much money the second offer would get you will get a prize! Good luck, it’s harder than it might look! You can use a calculator if you wish. It’s just a bit of fun so give it a try!

(Just for the record, my current finances make this maths problem hypothetical; maybe one day though)!!

  1. You can’t do one doubled i am guessing.That’s my theory.
    Reply anyone thinks the same.
    Good Luck trying to work this out. :D

  2. I would choose A because I would get a £1,000,000. I wouldn’t choose B because it is less amount. For B you would only get 57p. I would get 57p ; you do 28px2=56+1p=57p.

    2p x 28=56+1=57p

  4. Wow Sanam, some wildly varied answers there! From £2.70 to £134 million pounds! Answers will be revealed in school when someone gets ot correct. Writing your method would be good!
