  1. 1 Pint
    GP -> 1/2 + 1/4 + 1/8 .....

    a = r = 1/2

    So pint = 1

    2. the answer is 1 because .5 is given to the first mathematician .5 is left and out of the remaining if 2.5 is given to the second one again 2.5 is leftand so on....
      In this ways it will not exceed 1

    It's a convergent series, which converges to that value.

    every mathematician will just half the amount of beer in one glass.....meaning no 1 will ever take d last drop, just the half of it, so only 1 pint is needed
