Dustin’s Dilemma: Math Problem of the Week

Here's the answer to Dustin's Dilemma:(http://ow.ly/2tDC50w3fyD)

The snail reaches the top of the pit on the 16th day. On the first day, the snail reaches a height of 5 meters and slides down 4 meters at night, and thus ends at a height of 1 meter. And, on the second day, he reaches 6 meters, but slides back to 2 meters. On the third day, he reaches 7 meters, but slides back to 3 meters. And, on the fifteenth day, he reaches 19 meters, but slides back to 15 meters. On the sixteenth day, he reaches 20 meters, so now he is at the top of the pit.

Were you able to solve it on your own? Let us know!

Imagine that there is a snail. This little snail is stuck at the bottom of a steep, dark pit that is 20 meters deep. Every day, the little snail climbs as hard as he can five meters upwards. At nig…
