(please help I got the answer wrong)
A thief steals a number of rare plants from a nursery. On the way out, the thief meets three security guards, one after another. To each security guard, the thief is forced to give one-half of the plants that he still had, plus 2 more. Finally, the thief leaves the nursery with 11 plants . How many plants were originally stolen?
(I got 116, pretty sure that's wrong)

i think 116 is correct.

Add 2 to get 13
Double is 26
Add 2 for 28
Double is 56
Add 2 is 58
Double is 116
It was 116 thank you for clearing that out!
he left with 11
3rd guard taken 9 ( thief 2 more)
before 3rd guard he had 11+9=20
2nd guard taken 18(thief 2 more)
before 2nd guard 20+18=38
1st guard taken 36(thief 2 more)
he stolen 36+38=74
does this correct
