Freddie the frog is at the bottom of a 30 foot well each day he jumps up 3 feet but then during the night he slides back down 2 feet how may days will it take Freddie to get to the top and out?

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