It's snack time for the polar bears! The zookeeper puts out 10 fish and comes back to find some fish remaining as shown below. These picky polar bears have some curious habits:
- Though no bear can eat more than one fish, and some eat less, they won't share.
- These bears always start eating from either the head or the tail.
- Each one eats at least a little fish.
What is the largest possible number of polar bears in the enclosure?
Have you considered all the possibilities?
Yep, that's it!
The answer is six polar bears. Two fish have been completely eaten, and four have been partially eaten.
In the photo, the remains of the partially eaten fish are underneath two of the untouched fish.
Maybe the zookeeper should give the bears fewer fish next time!
