You have a hankering for chocolate, so you buy a huge sheet of 30 chocolate squares. The sheet is five squares long by six squares wide. You can only break the chocolate at the lines that run between squares, and you aren't allowed to stack multiple segments on top of each other.
Keeping those rules in mind, what is the fewest number of times you'll need to break the chocolate in order to separate each of the 30 chocolate squares?
Overwhelmed by all the ways to go about getting the answer? Don't think so hard!
Think about how your chocolate will end up and try working backward.
If you follow the rules set out in the puzzle, then it really doesn't matter how you break up the chocolate. The number of segments you have increases by one each time you break a chunk off the sheet.
You start with one segment of chocolate, so 29 breaks later, you should have 30 segments.
