Hosta Y 2013
Why do scuba divers fall backwards out of a boat?
What ship has no captain but two mates?
There was a shipwreck at sea and Buck, Lance and Jack were washed ashore on a small island. Reaching the shore, exhausted, they all fell asleep. Buck woke first and saw that a box of hosta had been washed ashore. He planted one third of the hostas and went back to sleep. Next, Lance woke up an seeing the box of hostas, planted one third of what was left and fell asleep. Jack woke up next and assumed that the other two hadn't planted any hostas, so he planted one third of what remained. When Jack had finished, there were eight hostas left over. How many hostas were in the box originally?
