### 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.

### What is slip system?

In this system, posting is made from slips prepared inside the
organization itself or from slips filled in by its customers. So
entries are not made in the books of original entry or subsidiary
books, but posting of entries is done from slips. In a banking
company, the main slips are pay-in-slips, withdrawal slips and
cheques and all these slips are filled in by clients of the bank.
These slips serve the basis of entry in the ledgers and control
accounts in the General Ledger are prepared on the basis of
analysis of these slips

### Timing belt for a Daewoo leganza is off?

If you mean the belt fell off the gears while the engine was
running, you will have to replace the cylinder head. This is a zero
clearance DOHC motor. When timing jumps, slips, or belt slips or
breaks, you WILL have broken valves. Be prepared for a lengthy
search---even for a salvaged head---Daewoo parts are becoming
scarcer by the day---good luck

2- Her dress slips and almost reveals her bazoomers, but she
quickly fixes it, then after the song's over she goes backstage to
fix it (look up: Katy perry dress slip)
