FAMOUS PROBLEM ABOUT MICROBES


You are invited not a joke, but a strict mathematical problem , for the solution of which, however, is not required knowledge of mathematical formulas from the section "Geometric progression".

TERMS OF THE TASK:

Microbes reproduce as follows: every second the microbe is divided in half, and instead of a single microbe, two are obtained, which in turn Also after one second they are divided in half and so on. We take an empty glass, we put in it one microbe and we mark time. After 30 seconds, the glass was filled to the top with microbes. QUESTION: For what time is the glass filled, if you put it in not one microbe, but two at once?

COMMENTS:

For many years this task has been used for entertainment and for evaluation of new team members as a IQ test.
