In a controlled chain reaction, for every three neutrons released by a uranium-235 nucleus, one is absorbed into another nucleus.
The number of neutrons absorbed by another nucleus decreases slightly. For every 30 released, only nine are absorbed. What will happen?

And

For every 30 released, eleven are absorbed. What will happen?
