Assume,total no of breads,x=48
first person stole,x/2 = 48/2 = 24.
second person stole,x/4 =(x/2)/2 = 24/12 =12.
third person stole, x/8 = (x/4)/2 = 12/2 =6.
fourth person stole, x/16 = (x/8)/2 = 6/2 =3.
Total breads stolen= 24+12+6+3 =45.
Still at the end there are 3 breads remaining what has
mentioned in the given question.
Hence no of breads initially are,48.
If we assume no of breads initially,x=63.
But in the question at the end there must be 3 breads
remaining,but in your logic 7 breads remaining,so 63 is
no of breads initially=x
breads taken by first thief= x/2+1/2=(x+1)/2
remaining breads= x-((x+1)/2)=(x-1)/2
breads taken by second theif= ((x-1)/4)+1/2=(x+1)/4
remaining breads= x-((x+1)/4)=(x-1)/4
remaining bread after third theif rob=(x-1)/8
remaining bread after forth theif rob=(x-1)/16

. For 1 month, 500 elementary students kept a daily record
of the no. of hours of watching television. The average no.
of hours per week spent watching television was 28hours.
Researchers conducting the study also obtained report cards
for each of the students. It was found that the students,
who did well in school spent less time watching television
and those who spent more time, did poorly. Listed below
several possible statements concerning the research. Place
a check on the statement that is definitely not true.
