Problem solving any one??

A camel needs to travel 3000 kms and transfer 3000 bananas.
Any given time, the maximum bananas the camel can carry is 1000
The camel needs to eat 1 banana for every km that it travels

What is the max bananas that the camel can transfer?

I can for sure tell that the camel is a very expensive mode of transportation in this situation :)

Madam CA - for your question - answer is none. The original question I've seen has the camel travel for 1000 miles only :-)

@ Sands - Whattan answer :-)

@Sands: I couldn't agree more ... you'll be surprised how many bananas are consumed by the time some reach the destination ;)

@PV: You crack me up every time ...

Refer to PV's post on Schrodinger's cat.

In Bunnu style

If pt A to pt B is 3000 miles and camel eats all bananas from A to B, what will camel eat from B to A?

What is the whole point of banana transfer?

Do camels even eat bananas?

What happens to the peel?

Who gets the banana and feeds it to the camel?

If a human is with camel, what does he eat and how is that carried?

I have more questions. ;)

Wait a min, the camel does not even reach pt B.

Who tells the camel to turn back at 500km or he will run out of food?

Does he drink water at all?

Totally agree with UTBT. I was thinking the same thing and see that she has commented my thoughts already.
