So you think you are smart? Prove it by solving this puzzle:


 A snail is at the bottom of a 30 foot well. Every hour the snail is able to climb up 3 feet, then immediately slide back down 2 feet. How many hours does it take for the snail to get out of the well?

30 foot well

1 hour = 3 feet
3 feet- 2 feet * 1 hour * 30 foot

=(3-2*30*1)hrs

=30hrs

The snail will never get out of the well. Its like taking 2 steps forward, one step backwards. Technically, you are still on the same spot. My opinion though

28. Because the final step takes it to the top of the well and it doesn't slide back at that point.

The answer is 28. Daseg and Sapiosexual got it right. But Daseg got it first so he's the winner. Stay tuned for another puzzle... lol.
