Problem 1277. How many days does the cat take to climb out of the hole?
My cat gets out 1 day earlier on cases 3 and 4, by a claw. He reaches 25 on day 20.
I stand by my test case answers for 3 and 4 as the cat must be clear or above the hole to escape.
Hi RIchard, sorry if my conditions are a bit restrictive and you are quite clever to have realised it could be a day earlier for those test cases. Perhaps my problem is unnecessarily restrictive so if others feel the same I will revise it. :)
There are also the feelings of the cat to consider--whether it is fair to force him to spend an extra day undergoing an experiment of questionable benefit to science (and no obvious benefit to cats).
