As I ruined the last one.. the least theing for me to do is post a new riddle. Here it goes..

1.- A person smokes 1 cigarrette every 10 minutes
2.- Each 5 cigarrette buds he makes a new cigarrette-
3.- He does not smoke for 3 hours each day (breakfast, lunch and dinner)
4.- He only smokes the cigarretts made out of buds on sundays.
5.- He is awake for 16 hours each day

How many cigarretts does he smoke in one year

well, here's my stab at it:

6 cigs/hr * 16hrs = 96cigs/day

96cigs * 6 days/week (dont include the free cigs he makes from butts for sunday) = 576cigs/week

576 cigs * 52weeks/yr =29952 cigs smoked

bonus: since every 5 weekdays he makes enough cigarettes for sunday, any cigarettes smoked on saturday will be 'butt' cigs he won't have time to smoke.

so, every 5 saturdays he'll generate a full day's worth of butt cigarettes. therefore:
52 weeks divided by 5 = 10.4 days worth of butt cigs, or
10.4*96=998.4 or

998 butt cigarettes & 4 left over butts at the end of the year.

if he wanted to save money, at the end of the year he would smoke only butt cigarettes since he'll have leftovers

am i close?

if it ain't broke, break it.

How many he smokes or how many he buys?
If how many he smokes,then all that bull about making them out of buds is just a catch.

he smokes 6 cig an hour x (16 hours a day - 3 hours for food) = 78
365 days a year x 78 = 28 470 cigs a year at 5 bucsk a pack he spends over 70 grand on cigarets.He should fly helis instead.

valerko: i pondered that question, but figured this wasnt a trick. so, i calculated based upon 'how many did he have to buy for the year'...and sundays were freebies that didnt count. otherwise you're right. the statement about 'butts' is just TMI.

so, is anyone on the right track yet, bato?

if it ain't broke, break it.

The solution has to be

He smokes 6 cigs per hour, he is awake 16 hours a day BUT he doesnt smoke for three of those.

Therefore 6 cigs by 13 hours is 78 per day.

78 per day by 6 days (he only smokes the buds on sunday, so therefore he is finishing the smokes from during the week = 468 per week.

By 52 weeks is 24336 cigs per year.

But dies of lung cancer.

28932 / 20 =1446 packs
1446 x $5.00=$7230.00 / year to kill himself and smell awful
Sounds like an awful lot of heli parts if you ask me.

the math is 13 hours at 6 per hour, doesnt matter where he gets them, or how many he makes from butts, whatever. 78 per day @ 365 days a year=28470, or 78 per day x 7=546 per week = 28392

29,930

13 hours times 6 an hour =78

you also need to add one when he wakes up and one after each meal at the top of the hourto make 7 p.h. in those 4 hours

+ one when he wakes =79

+ one after Breakfast =80

+ one after lunch =81

+ one after diner =82

82 x 365 = 29,930

Obey your heli's thurst

Technically the answer is none. The key is rule 4. He only smokes cigarettes made from buds on Sunday.

You have to smoke a cigarette to make a bud. You can only smoke cigarettes made from buds. Therefore he doesn't smoke any because there are no cigarettes made from buds until he smokes.
