Last Friday, we told you about a wonderful word problem written by 8th grade student Cody Swanek. It's about the troubles that J.J. Abrams, the director of the next Star Wars movie, faces during production. Pictured above is his original manuscript. It reads as follows:
J. J. Abrams is making Star Wars Episode 7. He rented three speeder bikes which was 700 imperial credits to start. He must pay 100 imperial credits to keep his speeder bikes daily. If he does not pay daily, Prince Xizor and other Black Sun members will kidnap J. J. Abrams, bring him to Mustafar, and sacrifice him.
J. J. Abrams is also paying 5 bounty hunters to keep separatist spies out. That costs 200 imperial credits to start, then 50 imperial credits for each bounty hunter every time they capture a spy. The Separatists send 2 spies every day.
In how many days does J. J. Abrams spend the same amount of imperial credits on speeders and bounty hunters?
Abrams has undertaken the monumental responsibility of creating the Star Wars movie and is thus not a man to shirk from a challenge. Topless Robot reports that Abrams solved Cody's problem and mailed him a handwritten explanation of his reasoning.
