## sathiprakash 4 years ago John needs 13 bottles of water from the store. John can only carry 3 at a time. What's the minimum number of trips John needs to make to the store? a. 3 b. 4 c. 4 1/2 d.5 e.6

1. ankur504

c. 5

2. sathiprakash

would u explain plz how?there its said minimum

3. ankur504

i meant d

4. ankur504

in 4 trips he carried 12 bottles but one is still left so he has to make a another trip

5. sathiprakash

6. ankur504

7. sathiprakash

well its given 4 in the book...but am not sure which one is correct either 4 or 5 or 4.5

8. ankur504

certainly not 4.5 ...because how can he have half trip??

9. iampaul

hahaha is there any chance that the answer is wrong cause i think ankur504 got it spot on

its 4

11. sathiprakash

could u explain howtz 4

he is already at the storer from my reading of the problem. so he carries 3 back. then he needs to make 4 trips TO the store to get the remaining

13. sathiprakash

well that could be nice logic

14. ankur504

hey this leads to 4 1/2 trips

the problem only asks how many trips TO the store, not TO and FROM the store

You only need to go to the store one time and take -13 bottles with you.

heh, i think this problem is not in the matrix and john is not Neo
