Eric, jon, Latonia, Sam were playing a game known as the doubling game. The game gets its name from its unique pay out system. Each time a lloser is declared, they must double the amount of money everyone else had. So if Eric loses, and jon has 5 dollars and Sam has 8 dollars then he would give them each $5 and $8 respectively.
At the end of round 1 Latonia loss
At the end of round 2 Sam loss
At the end of round 3 Eric loss
At the end of round 4 jon loss
By the end of round 4, all had 32 dollars. How much did they have at the start of the game?
