I have a math question and i want to see if anyone can get it right. If I gave penny, then doubled it each day for a month, how much money would u have at the end of the month?

HINT: It's over 1 million...

If it's over 1,000,000, then surely it's...OVER 9,000!!!

Someone had to. :p

I'll take a guess & say two million.

2**30 = 1073741824.

2**30 = 1073741824.

*claps* very nice...

I bet Endy already knew the answer before opening this thread.

I'm a little bothered by the fact that this wasn't actually a riddle.

i too would be embarrassed posting memes over a year old.

and tijs: i knew 2**30 is ~1e9 because 2**30 bytes is a gigabyte.

come out swinging

I like math riddles. I have not done one is a very long time. I think it dates back when i was in high school. My approach to solving them is to take each sentence and break it down. Make an equation out of the sentence. Get rid of any information that is not important. And then do the math and solve it.

We can assume for this math riddle it was a 30 day month or could it be a 31 day month.:D:D

This one is kind of ridiculous haha I apologize in advance:

How many jews can you fit in a VW Beetle?

54, two in the front, two in the back, and fifty in the ashtray.

That's not cool.

You might want to unquote it haha

ok, my turn for a math riddle!

given the function f(s) = sum(1/n^s, n, 1, inf), s <- C, are all zeros of this function of the form -2n (n <- Z+) or (1/2 + i*x) (x <- R)?

given the function f(s) = sum(1/n^s, n, 1, inf), s <- C, are all zeros of this function of the form -2n (n <- Z+) or (1/2 + i*x) (x <- R)?Yes. 50/50 chance!

No. Of course not.

if either one of you can prove it, i'll send you a thousand dollars.

Ok, give me a few minutes and I'll try to figure it out.

Can you actually post the solution, I'm curious to know...

And before anyone calls me out as a nerd, I'm a mechanical engineering major, so I'm allowed to like this stuff lol.

it's the riemann hypothesis. there's a million dollar prize, a fields medal, and a lifetime of fame awaiting whoever comes up with an answer.
