Your First Python Program

It’s been a while since I last shared with you. A lot has taken place during that time but I have recommitted to Python, Linux & Ethical Hacking.

For Python, I thought I would issue a challenge. This is for noobs so if you have programming experience this will not interest you at all.

The story behind this program is this. When I was in elementary school I remember being asked would it be better to receive $1 million or $.01 doubled each day for 30 days? This is tricky for a student, maybe even some adults.

What I want you to be able to accomplish is a python script that takes $.01 and doubles it every day for 30 days and compare it to $1 million to see which is a larger number. I am not really concerned with the formatting of the currency or details like that. Just show a functioning script.

I will be installing a script editor on the site soon but in the meantime take screen shots and add it to the comments.
