 A worm crawling home 2004-02-18 From Cindy:A worm is crawling to his home which is one meter away. The longer he crawls the weaker he gets and the less he can crawl the next day. If he crawls within 1/3000 of a meter of his home, he will find food. He must eat within twelve days. The first day he crawls 1/2 meter. The second day he crawls 1/4 meter. The third day he crawls 1/8 of meter. This pattern continues for twelve days. Make a Chart that shows the distance he has covered at the end of each day and the total he has covered at the end of each day. Does he make it to the Food in time? Answered by Penny Nom.
