**Topquark**, Wednesday, March 27, 2013 at 9:35pmAssume that there are x steps in all. Lara goes up (2x/3) steps and returns half the number of steps taken to 2x/6 or to (x/3) up from start.

After this there are (2x/3) steps still to go of which she once again takes (2/3)(2x/3)=(4x/9) steps to reach a spot which 6 steps away from the top.

Hence, x/3 + 4x/9 + 6 = x or x=27 steps.
