If you want a plant to grow, you don’t “leaf” it alone, you take care of it.
Likewise, if you want your math skills to grow, you have to take care of them by practicing. In this week’s word problem challenge you’ll need your foundational elementary school math skills such as addition, subtraction, and percents to solve the question of how fast a rogue vine will grow.
Go ahead and give it a try. And check back next week for the solution!
Question: A tree is 200 feet tall. A vine growing up the trunk of the tree overtakes 10% of the tree’s remaining height each week. How high does the vine reach after 3 weeks?
