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?
