A truck of capacity 1000 apples is to ferry 3000 apples across a 1000 km stretch of land driver eats up an apple for every km he ferries the load what is the maximum number of apples you can transport?

The above answer can also be improved. He can get 833 apples there. ============================================================== (1) The driver loads 1000 apples (1/3 of them) and goes one km and drops off the 999 apples. He does this 3 times, so he loses 3 apples. He does this method for 334 km, losing 3 apples each time. So having moved 334 km, he has lost 1002 apples so he has 1998 remaining. (2) Now he puts half the apples in the truck and goes a km drops them off and goes back to get the rest. He does this for 499 km, losing 2 apples per km. So he will have travelled 833 km and now has 1000 apples remaining. (3) He puts the thousand apples in the truck and drives the remaining 167 km, losing one apple each km. (4) He gets there with 833 apples.
