A monkey climbs on a tree 6 meters a minute but slips in the second minute by 3 meters. if the monkey needs to climb 60 meters, how much time will b required?
39 is d ans
What is the answer ? Is it 36 or 37? Please clarify someone
We need to check for the last but one jump..total minus initial jump capability i. e . 60-6=54.....by the time of last but one jump it has to be at the height of 54 so that in the next step it will go to 60 mtrs, which means no need to worry if it slips from 60 mtrs. Ans: time taken to jump 54 mtrs + 1 min to jump further 6 mtrs = 36 + 1 = 37 :-)
Monkey is climbing in odd minutes(1,3,5.....37)
Sry how can we know that
