I'd rather get \$500,000 now. I'd buy a Range Rover, keep my Mercedes that I already have, save up more money, and buy a house for five-hundred grand.

Sound like you are really good at saving money... you forgot about the ridiculous amount of taxes on the house, and all the bills...

500,000, unless the pennies were credit, where would I keep all those things.

500,000.. =)

500,000.

I'd take the 500,000.000 and just put most of it away and use it when I need to.

I guess...

I'll take 500,00 now. No way will I live that long. Now if it was \$100 a day I may break my calculator out

Report as

500,000 i might lose my pennies

Report as

500,000 it ends up being more (not to sound selfish or anything)

Report as
Yeah, thats the smarter of the options.

I would take the 500,000\$ now that way I could move out, buy a house, and car.

Report as

\$500,000 if i were to live for 70 more years it would only accumulate to about \$256

Report as

\$500,000 now

Report as

Well, it really depends..- screw this I'm going with the \$500,000

Report as

thing is-you never said the penny doubles or anything(like it usually goes).so what good would one penny a day do?even if you saved for 100 days-you'd only have 1.00.so,ill go with the 500,000

Report as
Exactly!!
Report as

\$500000

You totally said it wrong. The penny is supposed to double everyday.

Report as
Yes
That's what I was thinking
Report as

It would take more than a lifetime
To get to 500,000
365 times 100 is only 36,500
But considering it takes 100 penny's
To make a dollar - its longer than that even -

As the question is written I'd take the \$500,000, miharu_chan is correct in the math. However, (there's always a however), if you change the question to read: or one penny DOUBLED everyday for the rest of your life, I'd take the penny.

Report as

500,000 because if you get one cent day, you would get 365 cents a year which is like \$3.65! if u pick \$500,000 you can buy a house or a buissness n even make more money!
thats being smart

500,000!!!!!!!!
