If the recipe for a cake to be baked in a rectangular pan calls for 3 eggs and the baker doubles each dimension of the pan, how many eggs will be required, assuming that the baker wants to fill the new pan?
Bobo was walking down the street one day, minding his own business, when he found himself at the edge of a huge desert. The owner of a huge plantation offered Bobo an opportunity to make a lot of money transporting bananas across the desert.
Bobo wasn't doing anything that day, so he agreed to transport the entire year's banana harvest of three thousand bananas across the 1000 miles of burning sand. The more bananas he could get across the desert, the more he would make.
There was only one problem. His only means of transporting the bananas was a trusty but hungry camel named Koko. Koko could carry only a thousand bananas at a time, but she had to eat one banana for each mile she traveled.
Please help Bobo by telling him how he can get the maximum number of bananas across the desert.
