  • To illustrate the power of exponential growth, think of placing one grain of rice on the first square of a chessboard, then two on the second, four on the third, and so on.
  • The number of grains doubles on each subsequent square. How many grains of rice would we need to accomplish this task?
  • To complete the task, you would need 18 quintillion grains of rice, a concept that is hard to imagine!
