Family Math Night

We went to Family Math Night yesterday. It was really fun. We went from room to room and did different math games.
Here is the problem Brother was working on, that BTW he solved and I could not:
Foolish Farmer Logan gives his son Fred lollipops to get him to help around the farm. He needs his help to plant and tend the spring garden, so he's thought of this foolhardy plan:
"I'll give Fred one lollipop on the first day, and, for the other days, I'll give him as many lollipops as I've given on all the previous days plus one more."
How many lollipops will Foolish Farmer Logan give away on the 12th day?

I don't like math. There's a reason I was an English major.

Good job, Brother!
