Re: ThinkWell, let's see, on the first day it has x liters, on the second day x(1+2), third day x(1+2+4) fourth day x(1+2+4+8), etc... Am I on the right track? Any geniuses out there?

Re: ThinkHmmm ... what you enter doubles ... So on the first day it has x liters, on the second day 3x, on the third day 7x, ... after a few days it does get close enough to doubling. In fact you could say it always doubles, except it is always 1x short "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M.

Re: ThinkI said that you enter x liters of water the first day 2x on the second day and 4x on the second day. I did'nt say there TOTAL!!!! (it mean you keep doubling the amount of water you enter in the pond each day with respect to the amount of water entered the previous day irrespective of the ammount of water in the pond) #8 20050224 19:38:42

Re: ThinkI haven't got a clue for that one, could you tell me the answer? School is practice for the future. Practice makes perfect. But  nobody's perfect, so why practice? #11 20050421 01:56:59
Re: ThinkI guess that's all that counts. School is practice for the future. Practice makes perfect. But  nobody's perfect, so why practice? #13 20050421 08:34:03
Re: ThinkSo, the two piles have 42 and 10 cards each. There are 10 upsidedown cards mixed up in them, and you don't know if the pile of 10 cards has no upsidedowns, 1 upsidedown, or, freakishly, 10 upside down cards.
