A stoner's dilemma

The dilemma - can you solve it?

What we know: A desperate stoner out of weed walks his crib looking for roaches. He wants to use the weed in any roaches he finds, and reroll it to make a whole joint. He needs 5 roaches to make one whole joint. It's his lucky day cos this stoner finds a tin with 125 roaches in it. WoOt!

Question: How many joints can he make from these 125 roaches? I'll give a rep to anyone who gets this right.

Oh my. It's a little early for this. 25 too obvious?? If it were me I'd roll 1 j and smoke it and forget about the rest.

Well guys, seems this enigma has you stumped.
Solution: 31 joints.
He can make 25 from the first 125 roaches, then after he smokes these, he makes 5 from the 25. He then makes one joint from the 5 he made from the 25.

25 + 5 + 1 = 31

Ha Ha thanks Rob. I actually took this from a site on enigmas, but I modified it so no-one could google up the answer. Stoners are pretty cluey, so I had to get devious.

Australian Eastern Standard Time. When it's dark in the US it's day here. When it's summer in the US it's winter here. Right now it is middle of winter and we have been getting snow. Bring back summer.

AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW MOOOOOOSE.

I'm pissed off because I was thinking "Well, 25 from the the 125, then if you figure in the roaches from that, it would be another 5, and those 5 can combine to make one, so 31!!"

But you revealed the answer :(

You're all wrong. The answer is 31.2 because he can roll 1/5 of a joint with the roach left in the end.

:allgood:
