The rules of the race were that the owner of the camel that crosses the finish line last wins the fortune. The wise man simply told them to switch camels. ^^^^^^


An athlete is able to jump FOREVER. However, everytime that she jumps she gets a bit more tired, and every jump goes 12 as far as her prior jump. Now, for her very first jump, she goes 12 of a foot.

On her second jump, she goes 14 of a foot, and so on and so forth. The beginning of her journey is shown in the gif below.


How many jumps does it take for her to travel 1 foot?

Eactly MYG. She will never get to the 1 foot mark because you keep adding smaller and smaller amounts!

In a certain country ½ of 5 = 3. If the same proportion holds, what is the value of 1/3 of 10 ?

5/2 = 3

Therefore 10/2 = 6

Therefore 10 = 12

Therefore 1/3 of 12 = 4

Answer = 4
