A man has $32 and decides to plant a garden. He cannot stand the thought of spending all of his money on any single day, so each day he goes to the store and spends half of his money on tomato plants. When he no longer has enough money to buy additional plants, how much money will he have left?

hard to say. How much does a plant cost?

If plants cost $1, then

32-16-8-4-2-1 = 1

If they cost 50 cents, then

32-16-8-4-2-1-.50 = .50

If they cost 1 cent each, and he spends at least half the money, rounding up, then

32-16-8-4-2-1-.50-.25-.13-.06-.03-.02-.01 = 0
