Misleading but amusing "compound interest" problem
Beer soaked ramblings follow.
The following problem had me stumped for a while till I realized, after 3 beer bottles and half an hour later, how simple it really was.
At a certain rate of compound interest, money will double in x years, money will triple in y years, and money will increase tenfold in z years. At this same rate of compond interest, \$5 will increase to \$12 in n years. Find integers a, b, and c so that n = ax + by + cz.
