Corey Camel Pow # 12

Satisfactory Essays
Corey Camel Problem Statement Corey Camel owns a banana grove with 3000 bananas on it. She can only carry 1000 bananas at a time. The market where she can sell her bananas is 1000 miles away. Sounds easy right? Wait there’s a catch. For every mile she walks she has to eat one banana. See now it got hard. So with all of this said how many bananas will he be able to take to the market and sell? Process Doing the mini POW helped a lot with this one. Because knowing that Corey Camel can drop bananas on the way to the market is an important part, because of he couldn’t the answer would be an obvious zero. Since you can drop them I decided to drop 800 bananas at the 100 mile point. That way she can eat her 100 bananas that she needs to on her way there and still have another 100 to get back to her banana grove. When she gets there she’ll have 900 new bananas. The only problem is that she can only carry 1,000 bananas at a time. So she takes 1,000 bananas the rest of the way. This would leave her with 100 bananas. Then I realized that wasn’t the largest amount that she could sell. So I started to work backwards from 500 miles. I did this because 500 is half of 1,000. The only problem with 500 is that she would use 500 bananas to get there and wouldn’t be able to drop any bananas because she would have to use the last 500 bananas to get back. So I started to work with 400 miles. When she gets there she has 600 bananas to drop. But she needs 400 of those to go back. So she drops 200 bananas. When she comes back she has an additional 500 bananas. When she picks up the other 200 bananas she has 700 bananas. When she gets to the market she has 300 bananas because she had to eat 400 bananas on the way. I wasn’t sure if that was the largest amount of bananas so I tried the 300 mile point. So she would drop 400 bananas and go back she would come back and get to market with 300 bananas. Then I tried the 200 mile point. She would drop 700 bananas come back and get to market

    For Adam, living with his pilot father and family in an expatriate compound in Abudai in the Arabian Gulf, life could not be easier. But when war breaks out, Adam finds himself alone and attempting to find his way back to the abandoned compound to save his dog, Tara, who has been left in the mad rush to escape across the boarder. We also meet Walid, living a miserable life as a camel rider in a camp on the outskirts of Abudai. His father is dead and his mother works in Abudai, and he must win enough money racing camels to buy his freedom and return to his mother. By showing kindness to a camel due to foal he is responsible for her accidental death, and for this he is taken to a cave out in the desert, hobbled at hands and feet, and left to die by the cruel men who he was sold to. Dazed and delirious from the desert heat, Adam has finished his water and is close to passing out when he comes across Walid, hoping at first that he might be saved, but then realising that Walid has been tied up and abandoned in the desert. Together the two boys manage to capture a mountain goat, which they milk and then kill for the meat, to keep them alive. Although they do not understand each other’s language, and both assume the other is a fool, they somehow are able to work together to stay alive. Just when things seem to be going well, they are discovered by the two men from Walid’s camel camp – Old Goat and Breath of dog, as Walid calls them – who attack the boys and try to kill them. Somehow Adam and Walid manage to escape and continue their journey towards Abudai. The two boys face instances of real danger and come close to losing their lives on several occasions, but by working together they are finally returned to the compound and to safety. Adam discovers that his family had offered a reward for the boys’ safe return, and it was this that led to Old Goat and Breath of Dog finally taking them back…

    Every summer I try to golf as I can. But this last summer I started to work more and golf less because I had to start saving for college. But on a Sunday early in June my uncle called me on the phone and asked me if I would go golfing. I reluctantly said yes because I was very tired and grumpy from work that week but I loved golfing with my uncle. But before I left my mother said with a smile “go out there have fun and kick uncle Josh's butt”. When I arrived at the golf course we play at. I waited for him and he was late as he usually was, but my uncle is a salesman and found us another tee time. I love my uncle Josh so I didn't care that he was late.…
