Answer to Question #17482 in Other Math for ananthgtrf
Alex wants to visit one of his relatives. The first day he made half of the way and one more meter, the second day he made half of the remaining distance and 2 more meters, the third day he made half of the yet remaining distance and 3 more meters. So, for the fourth day he just had 8 more meters to go. How far did his relative live?
(х-1)/2 +1 + (((x-1)/2+1) -2)/2 +2 + (((((x-1)/2+1)-2))/2+2)-3)/2 +3 +8 = xx = 95
