If a frog in a 10 foot well jumps 3 feet and slides back 2 feet in one day how many days will it take to get to the top of the well?


It'd take 8 days. After continuing to jump 1 ft per day, after a week (7 days) it'd be 7 feet up. On the next day, day 8, it'd jump 3 more feet, making it 10 feet and then, as it's at the top technichally, even if it slides down it reached the top on day 8.

After one day the frog makes a net increase of 1 ft, by the 7th day the frog has reached a max height of 9ft but slides down to 7th feet. By the eighth day the frog jumps 3ft (7ft-10ft) reaching the top. So it takes 8 days for the frog to reach 10ft.
Well i thin if it moves up one ft per day and it is jumping three ft per dy then on day 7 it would be 7 ft up and jump three feet to reach the top however it is also a possibility that it doesn't make it up because after all jumping level with something makes it quite difficult to land on. So perhaps it is day 8? Hard to say imo

It would take the frog 10 days, if there is no water in the well!
