20120612 

From Silje: Hi! How can I solve the following question without the use of a calculator?
"A cylinder is to be filled with peas. It is done like this: At 12:00 o'clock you put 1 pea in, at 12:01 you put 2 peas in, at 12:02 you put 4 peas in, at 12:03 you put 8 peas in, and so on.
This continues until 14:00 o'clock (two hours later), when the last peas are put in and the cylinder is full. At what time is the cylinder half full?" Answered by Robert Dawson.
