29 days, unless on the 29th day he doesn't jump right out, then it would be 30 by the description you gave.

No, try

28 days

he starts the second day one foot up

he starts the third day two feet up up

...

he starts the 28th day 27 feet up

and his jump takes him to the top

where he is eaten by a waiting stork

Hee hee, nice one! Thanks for the correction Geezer

### How long will it take a monkey to reach the top if the monkey is at the bottom of a well ten feet deep and each day he jumps up 3 feet and slips back two?

8 days.
I say 10 days. Day 1, jumps 3 feet, slides back 2 feet equals 1
foot up on Day 1. Day 2, jumps 3 feet, slides back 2 feet equals 1
foot up on Day 2, plus 1 from Day 1 = 2 feet.
Day 3, jumps 3 feet, slides back 2 feet equals 1 foot up on Day
3, plus 1 from Day 1 and 1 from Day 2 = 3 feet.
etc. until Day 10 when his jumps total ten feet up.
