Then place four grains on the third square. Continue this until all 64 squares are covered with grains of wheat.â€ As he had just harvested his wheat, Mr. Crane did not consider this much of an award, but he soon realized he made a miscalculation on the amount of wheat involved.calculate the amount of wheat to fill the whole checkerboard. 64 squares... how much wheat would the farmer give the salesman? provide answer in scientific notation or calculate and show all 20 digitsThank you
