Mike And Tim Are Looking To Earn A Little Extra Money The Beach Committee Offers

Mike and Tim are looking to earn a little extra money. The beach committee offers them the opportunity off picking up plastic bottles, paying them $0.20 per bottle. Mike realizes as they pick up it will get harder and harder to find more bottles. So as an incentive to keep looking he suggest a different form of payment. He suggests $0.10 for the first bottle, and increase the pay by 2% for each bottle after that. Tim thinks Mike is crazy to propose an increase of just 2% per piece. He plans to ask for a one-cent increase for every piece, starting at 15 cents for the first bottle. Suppose the committee accepts each offer.
