Mr. Brown insisted on giving the man an award for his heroism. So, the salesman said, “If you insist, I do not want much. Get your checkerboard and place one penny on the first square. Then place two pennies on the next square. Then place four pennies on the third square.

Answer: Show work in this space b)How much would the traveling salesman receive if the checkerboard only had 32 squares?
