Could explain it easy way

Mitchell plans to work at a day camp over the summer. Each week, he will be paid according to the following schedule: at the end of the first week, he will receive $1. At the end of each subsequent week, he will receive $1, plus an additional amount equal to the sum of all payments he’s received in previous weeks. How much money will Mitchell be paid in total during the summer, if he works for the entire duration of the 8-week-long camp?






Make the following Chart and write the payments one by one.









Week Current Week Pay Previous Week Pay Total pay of the Week
Week 1 $1 $0 $1
Week 2 $1 $1 $2
Week 3 $1 $3 $4
Week 4 $1 $7 $8
Week 5 $1 $15 $16
Week 6 $1 $31 $32
Week 7 $1 $63 $64
Week 8 $1 $127 $128



The total Payout would be $255, i.e sum of the last coulmn

PS: Please post the questions in relevant forums and add tags so that students in future can search for the answers.

Regards,
