Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well so basically in other terms we can say that the monkey only jumps 1 meter every jump

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So we can model our equation as follow 2xx=12 Or (21)x=12 and then solve for x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3It takes 11 jumps. He won't slip from 12 to 11 on the last jump because he's already at the top. You are basically counting the elements in the following: 2, 3, 4, . . . , 12 which is 11 each element is the position before the slip but after the jump.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well, why would a monkey be jumping on a bare pole anyway? is not like it has figs or bananas, so really on every jump the monkey is wasting 2 meters plus momentum of eneergy :P
