Extra Credit Extension. (Due at the final exam.)

Extra Credit #1. Consider the case of Mini-Camel - the enterprising but eccentric owner of a small banana grove in a remote desert oasis.


(a) Show how Mini can get some (a positive number of) bananas to the market.

(b) Can you get eight bananas to market?

Extra Credit #2. Like Mini-Camel, Corey Camel also owns a banana grove and has a secret way to market. But, Corey's banana grove consists of 3000 bananas and Corey can only carry at most 1000 bananas at a time. The marketplace where Corey's harvest can be sold is 1000 miles away. Like Mini, however, Corey Camel eats one banana during each and every mile she walks. How many bananas can Corey get to market? Explain how the answer to the Mini problem relates to the answer here.
