This question comes from the Math Central website: "The problem is: Corey Camel's harvest, worth its weight in gold, consists of 3000 bananas. The market place where the stash can be cashed in is 1000 miles away. However, Corey must walk to the market, and can only carry up to 1000 bananas at a time. Furthermore, being a camel, Corey eats one banana during each and every mile she walks (so Corey can never walk anywhere without bananas). How many bananas can Corey get to the market? As a reminder we're told to save our notes as we work on the problem. I can't get past an answer of 0. Corey can only carry 1000 bananas and he eats one for every mile so by the time he gets to the market he has 0 bananas to sell and 0 bananas to eat to get him home."

The answer given is 533. A long explanation of the math is also given.

No, they are not. Many fruits are mentioned, especially in Genesis, but not bananas. But, this doesn't mean that they didn't exist then.

Ed has 9+3 bananas = 12 He has 8 more bananas than Gail 12-8 = 4 Gail has 4 bananas.

This is dependant on the simulation. I have done the Marketing version that contained only 6 quarters. I believe marketplace live 6 advanced version contained 9 quarters
