Harvest Time

Author(s): 

 A man plants 4 kernels of corn, which at harvest produce 32 kernels: these he plants the second year; now supposing the annual increase to continue 8 fold, what would be the produce of the 15th year, allowing 1000 kernels to a pint? (Express answer in bushels). (Adam's Arithmetic, USA, 1848)
