My daughter and I were solving a math trivia and I could not come up with any answer other than zero. Would be interesting to see if somebody has a different opinion. The problem follows:
You are at the start of a 1000 mile road with 3000 gummybears and a donkey. At the end of the road is a supermarket. You want to find the greatest number of gummy bears you can sell. Unfortunately, your donkey has a disease and can only carry 1000 gummybears at 1 time. Also, the donkey must eat 1 gummybear per mile.
- You can drop off gummybears anywhere on the road - You can't carry gummybears while walking - No loopholes
Again, this was a math trivia question and I could not ask anybody for clarification about what some the caveats meant or what the "no loopholes" meant, therefore I got zero.
(If I were to guess about the "no loopholes", I would think they meant no "carrying the donkey" like I suggested to my daughter :) )
