How do you do it?
« on: July 18, 2014, 04:16:10 PM »
Ready for a little brain exercise? Ok, here we go.

We'll start out with me giving you 1,000 $1 bills.  Now you provide 10 envelopes (yes, it's up to YOU to provide them, I just gave you $1000) and divide the money up so no matter what amount I ask you for, between one and a thousand dollars, you will be able to hand me one or more envelopes, and give me the exact amount.

What amount do you put in each envelope?
