Corey’s Camels POW

Problem Statement

The problem basically is about a camel named Corey that has to carry 3000 bananas to a place 1000 miles away. But, Corey can only carry 1000 bananas and Corey has to eat one banana for every mile she walks/runs/skips/hops, etc. In addition to that, there is a refrigerator at every mile. So the question being asked is how many bananas can Corey get to the market with all these requirements?

Strategy

My strategy for this problem is to make some sort of a chart and/or explain the POW in steps. I will explain the problem in a clear and understandable way to make sure the person reading it will understand it and how the problem is very complicated/easy.

Problem Process

Once I read the problem, I knew you had to think outside the box, but I wasn’t sure how. So I started off like this:

Number of Bananas Corey is carrying
Number of Bananas dropped off and at which mile
Number of bananas left/needed for the returning trip
1000
200th: 600 bananas
200 bananas
1000
200th: 600 bananas
200 bananas
1000
200th: 800 bananas
0 bananas
1000
600th: 200 bananas
400 bananas
1000
600th: 200 bananas
0 bananas

Solution

Evaluation

I think I would rate the POW, Corey the Camel, a 3.5 because it was one of those problems in which you didn’t understand the POW at first, but after a while you would be saying to yourself, “Oh……..”. It took me a while to actually understand the problem but then something clicked inside my brain and then I was able to understand the problem.
