How many units are lost if betting a 4 game chase at -110 on every game? I see so many wrong answers everywhere.

Bonus question:

If it takes 7 men 7 days to dig 7 holes how long does it take for 1 man to dig 1/2 of a hole?

You get the Gold star for the first answer but the second incorrect. Try phone a friend or ask the audience!

Don't see how Neilsy's answer wasn't right. Each man digs 1/7 of a hole a day. 1/7 x 3.5 = .5

i made a spreadsheet for up to 6 game chase. You can change the line for each game to calculate the total loss. It only works with - lines, don't have the time to adjust it to work with + lines.

Sure you can. If a building plan calls for a 5 foot wide hole, 6 feet deep and you only dig a 2.5 foot wide, 3 feet hole, it's half of what you need. But I guess it's still a hole, just a small one. lol

Actually, in your example, your dug hole is only 25% of the designed hole.

Here's another one for you guys:

There are 7 girls in a bus 

Each girl has 7 backpacks 

In each backpack, there are 7 big cats 

For every big cat there are 7 little cats 

Question: How many legs are there in the bus?

I don't know about that answer being correct.  
What if one of the girls left her backpack at home, or forgot it at the bus stop?  Plus, there's always a 3 legged cat running around here and there.  
Don't forget that there are rules on bus occupancy. Is it a greyhound bus, a school bus or the short bus?  
On top of it all...do the cats eat the girls lunches if the lunches are in the back pack too and is there enough for all the cats to share equally?
How old are the girls again?

The 3 legged cats are on the short bus following this bus.
