Q:

You have a part-time job. One day your boss offers to pay you either 2h−1 or 2h − 1 dollars for each hour h you work that day. Complete the table. Which option should you choose? Explain.I filled in the first part of the table I just need help on the second part.

Accepted Solution

A:
For the second part, you have to subtract 1 from the number of hours and raise it to that power.

For example, when h = 1, you have:

2^(1 - 1)
2^0
1

The 5 values in your table would be:
1  2  4  8  16
