**Reiny**, Thursday, November 10, 2011 at 9:27pm1st cycle:

equivalent of 12 bars used, 24 half-bars left over

recycled to make 12 new bars

2nd cycle:

equivalent of 6 bars used, 12 half-bars left over

recycled to make 6 new bars

3rd cycle:

equivalent of 3 bars used, 6 half-bars left over

recycled to make 3 new bars

4th cycle:

equivalent of 1.5 bars used, 3 half-bars left over

recycled to make 1.5 new bars

since only full-size bars can be used, only one more bar can be used

total used: 12+6+3+1.5+1 = 23.5

So 1/2 bar is left over.
