    Re: New Math Question

    or better yet, 0 evelopes.

    You are going to sell that customer something more to use up his change.

    i think smootpepper is right... but you still can't give change for 100 if the customer gives you 100.

    i'm not math guru or anything but i do work at a register at my job. what if they need coins? you'd need at least a 100 pennies to be able to cover all the change that could happen in coins. just thought i'd throw in my 2 cents

    Then it would be 13 envelopes. Same binary scheme as $100 uses just take out the $1 bill from the 100 since the coins makes up for that.

    Then I would suggest not majoring in mathematics in college :grin: , because it gets much much worse then this. 100 times worse.

    The correct answer is 7 envelopes.

    It can also be done this way, which is the way we were shown.

    1
    2
    4
    8
    16
    32
    37

    =7 envelopes.

    The first 6 numbers are in sequence with a common ratio of 2 (or geometric progression). The last number, 37, is found by adding up the first 6 numbers and subtracting it by 100.

    Both answers seem to work out ok.
    Skol!
