The Peanuts (Posted on 2003-02-18) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Although some of the things in this problem aren't true in real life just assume they are in the question.

When growing peanuts the following happens:

  • for every 2 single chambered peanuts there will be one double chambered peanut
  • for every 2 double chambered peanuts there will be one triple chambered peanut
  • for every 2 triple chambered peanuts there will be one quadruple chambered peanut.

    When a company packages 1000 peanuts in one bag they take peanuts randomly from a giant bin that contins all the peanuts grown. What are the odds that there will be 1000 individual nuts?
