How long does it take the men to remove the hats?

0 votes

A bunch of men are on an island, A genie comes down and gathers everyone together and places a magical hat on some people’s heads (i e , at least one person has a hat). The hat is magical: it can be seen by other people, but not by the wearer of the hat himself. To remove the hat, those (and only those who have a hat) must dunk themselves underwater at exactly midnight. If there are n people and c hats, how long does it take the men to remove the hats? The men cannot tell each other (in any way) that they have a hat.
Note: Genie does not tell how many hats she has put.

Frogger the magic frog can jump 10 feet using his magical magic jump, but his magic loses its power by a half each time, so his next jump only goes as far as 5 feet. The next jump will take him 2.5 feet, and so on.
How many jumps does it take to make it all the way across a 100 foot long pond?
