Answer:262 144

Step-by-step explanation:At each round, there are four times more people reposting the joke. Therefore, we have 4^{9} = 262 144 people reposting the joke on ninth round.

Answer:65536 (people)Step-by-step explanation:Each new count is found by multiplying the previous one by 4. This is a geometric sequence. The general geometric sequence model a(n) = a(1)*r^(n -1) becomes

a(n) = 1*4^(n – 1)

On the 9th round, a(9) people will post the joke:

a(9) = 1*4^(9 – 1) =
