To Eat (the pizza) or to Not Eat (the pizza) Problem
A man is eating pizza. During the first day he eats a half of the pizza. On the second day he eats a third of the remaining part of the pizza. The third day he eats a fourth of what is left, and on the fourth day he eats a fifth of what still remains.
He then stops because the last piece was not fresh. What fraction of the original pizza is left after he eats the portion on the 4th day?

When he swims back in, he takes 16 minutes to swim against the tide. If Greg swims 100 yards per minute in still water, how many yards away is the buoy?
