You are on your way to visit your Grandma, who lives at the end of the valley. It's her birthday, and you want to give her the cakes you've made.

Between your house and her house, you have to cross 7 bridges, and as it goes in the land of make believe, there is a troll under every bridge! Each troll, quite rightly, insists that you pay a troll toll. Before you can cross their bridge, you have to give them half of the cakes you are carrying, but as they are kind trolls, they each give you back a single cake.

How many cakes do you have to leave home with to make sure that you arrive at Grandma's with exactly 2 cakes?

2 cakes

ReplyDelete2 cakes !!

ReplyDelete2 cakes will work. Too tired to think if there are any other solutions. May post later.

ReplyDelete2 cakes ! not matter how many bridges, it will work even for 100 bridges ...

ReplyDeleteStarting out with two cakes will end with two cakes, yes, but only one would be made by you, since you had to give one to the troll at the first bridge. One of the cakes would be from a troll.
