Default DAY 8 (Sun, Dec 16th) of the '12 Days of WI' Contest! ANSWER AND CROWN OF WONDER WINNER ANNOUNCED ON FIRST POST!!

The correct answer to yesterday's contest is:

1) Joey started with 41 Goo Goo Berries.
2) He sent 24 Goo Goo Berries to his friends each time.
(multiples of this ratio were also considered correct answers)

The winner selected from all correct entries is:

cmcm624

** Note: several entrants answered zero. However, the word problem stated that Joey sent 'some' Goo Goo Berries to his friends, therefore, zero is not a correct answer.

==========================================
Day 8 of the "12 Days of WI" Contest is a mathematical brain teaser. Today's prize is a CROWN OF WONDER! This is the daily contest thread - in addition to entering here, be sure to keep an eye out for snowflakes that may appear randomly on WI throughout the day for a chance to win an entry into the Grand Prize drawing for a Love Puppy or a 2005 Holiday Tubby Tummies Bear!

==================================================

On the thirteenth of December Insider gives to you, a Kinzstyle Santa suit. No Golden Box. Take this Holiday phrase, and make a bunch of words, minimum three letters, and click snowflakes for a W Shop surprise.

On the sixteenth of December Insider gives to you, a mathematical puzzle, it may seem kind of tricky, but you can find the answer, and win a Crown of Wonder. No golden box. These are amazing prizes, more is still to come, we've had some other winners, and click snowflakes for a W Shop surprise.

(jingle courtesy of Cynalot - thank you!)
=================================================

For today's contest, you must find the correct answers to this mathematical puzzle and PM it to 12DaysofWI.

=========

The Puzzle

Joey was sitting in Webkinz World catching Goo Goo Berries. After a while, he looked at how many he had in his dock and decided to send some to his friends.

After he sent some to his friends, he saw how many remained in his dock and decided that he would catch some more Goo Goo Berries until he had doubled that number.

Once he doubled that amount, he sent away the same number of Goo Goo Berries he had sent away before.

He looked at how many remained in his dock and decided that her would catch some more until he tripled that number.

Once he tripled that number, he again sent away the same number of Goo Goo Berries he had sent the last time.

He looked at how many he had left in his dock, and decided to catch some more Goo Goo Berries until he had quadrupled the amount he now saw in his dock.

Once he quadrupled that number, he again sent away the SAME number of Goo Goo Berries away to friends.

He had 0 Goo Goo Berries left in his dock.

He did not feed ANY to his pets. He did not store any Goo Goo Berries in his room.

1) How many Goo Goo Berries did he have before he sent the first bunch to his friends?

2) How many Goo Goo Berries did he send to his friends each time?

=========

Then PM your answer to 12DaysofWI. All members who answer both questions correctly will be entered into a random drawing to determine the winner of the Crown of Wonder!

* Note: You must have 10 posts throughout the forum to be able to send PMs.

Here are the rules/guidelines:
* Solve the mathematical brain teaser above.
* PM your answers to the questions to 12DaysofWI.
* All answers must be PM'd to 12DaysofWI to be considered valid entries.
* Entries must be submitted by 12 midnight EST on Sunday, December 16th to qualify.
* The closest correct guess will be the winner. If there are multiple people with the same guess, they will be entered into a random drawing.
* The winner will be announced by noon on Monday, December 17th.
* You may only enter once.

Best of luck!

Wendy & Justin

Do we have all the info we would need to figure this out? wouldn't we need to know how many friends he sent to or something?

Once this one is won- can someone PLEASE post the answer and how they got it- because this one has me stumped on how to even start figuring it out!

Okay well I'm officially stumped and math is my favorite subject! I can write the equation but there are too many variables and not enough info for ME to figure out. Can you please post the answer after someone has won this? I would really appreciate it.
