Subject: Interesting trivia - anybody has a different answer than I keep getting - zero

My daughter and I were solving a math trivia and I could not come upwith any answer other than zero.  Would be interesting to see ifsomebody has a different opinion.  The problem follows:You are at the start of a 1000 mile road with 3000 gummybears and adonkey.  At the end of the road is a supermarket.  You want to findthe greatest number of gummy bears you can sell.  Unfortunately, yourdonkey 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 loopholesAgain, this was a math trivia question and I could not ask anybody forclarification about what some the caveats meant or what the "noloopholes" meant, therefore I got zero.(If I were to guess about the "no loopholes", I would think they meantno "carrying the donkey" like I suggested to my daughter :)  )Thanks for your time.s
