Great job in calculating the number!
Now that you have written it the question is:
"Can we read this number?" ;-)

The number on the 64th square
by: Jason

... is 2^64, which equals 18,446,744,073,709,551,616, as mentioned in the article. Sorry Jonah.

Correction ...
by: Anonymous

The number on the 64th square is 2^63, not 2^64
Why? Because there was 1 grain on the first, 2 on the second, 4 on the third i.e. 2^0, 2^1, 2^2

That being said it is still one enormous amount of rice!!
