# To Moon With a Piece of paper?

Did U know , U can reach The Moon Just by folding a piece of paper 42 times .
Let me Explain How !
Average Thinkness Of a Paper = 0.075 mm
If I folded paper Once , Thickness = (0.075 mm)* 2 (Exponent = no of Times Folded)
If I folded paper Twice , Thickness = (0.075 mm)* 2^2
If I folded paper Thrice , Thickness = (0.075 mm)* 2^3
.

If I folded paper (N) Times , Thickness = (0.075 mm)* 2^(N)
Now , Let (N) = 42
So ,
Thickness = (0.075 mm) * 2^42
= {(7.5) * (10^-8) Km} * {(4.398) * (10^12)}
= 329,853 Km (Approx. 330,000 Km)

Distance Between Moon to Earth = 384,400 Km

This is how paper folded 42 times can take it’s thickness To Moon , But this Is impossible because As we fold the surface area Of paper decrases by {(A) * {2^(-N)} So , Paper will be negligible at the length of
{(A) * {2^(-42)} Units .

I Know 330,000 Km isn’t even near to 384,400 Km but I Just Took An Inbetween Value . The Thickness of the paper lies Between 0.05 mm to 0.10 mm

Are you sure the equation is correct?
