The Bank Manager doesn't just take care of your Neopoints; he has his own, too. He doesn't work for free. Geesh.

After winning 20,000 NP on the Wheel of Excitement one day, he decided to go on a little shopping spree.

First, he visited Mystery Island, where he spent 15% of his winnings on delicious tropical food. After that, he takes a chance on the Tombola and wins, which adds 15% of his NP to his total. Then he stops at the trading post strikes a deal for some Jelly Sponge Cake at 8% of his NP.

And, being the smart bank manager that he is, he finally puts his Neopoints into a new bank account so he can save up and earn some interest.

**After 10 days of collecting interest every day, at the maximum account level he can achieve each day, how many Neopoints will the bank manager have?** Remember, bank interest is rounded up!

Enter just the number with proper number formatting. (So if you think the answer is one thousand one hundred and eleven Neopoints, enter *1,111*.)

sent!

ReplyDeletethis was kinda simple compared to most other numerical questions

What's the answer then?

Delete1,900,000

ReplyDeleteLOL No

Deletewhat?!?!?

Deletehow did you get that from

20k

-15%

+15%

-8%

+interest at below 25k level?

You think that's funny ya fucking homo ???

Delete@Homo Hater

Deletehomos are perfectly fine.

just because you believe in something that you think is wrong, doesn't mean that they don't have their own beliefs too. IDK why this is still an issue because this is a government for the people ad not all people are straight. homo shouldn't be used to call names.

Awwww lighten up Francis...I'm jus playin'

Deletehow

ReplyDeleteWhat's the answer? Pleassee I need the avatar!

ReplyDeleteas soon as I get confirmation that my friends have submitted I'll post it but I don't want to risk them getting another trophy ^^

DeleteTHANK YOU (:

DeleteCan someone plz the tell me the answer <3 :D i need to know!

Delete22,341

ReplyDeleteAlso not what I got. I actually did this in the bank so I'm pretty sure this is wrong.

Delete21,498

ReplyDeleteI didn't get this either, js.

Deletereally because

ReplyDeletei've got it as its either

18,026 or 18,030

I got 18,026 at 4np interest/a day. and it didn't go up over those 10 days.

DeleteI got 18,026 too. ^^ Oh well, my friends will have to get the trophy next week *lol*

Deletesorry but your wrong, you dont get interest on the first day as you've deposited money into a new account, therefore its only

Delete18,022

"After 10 days of collecting interest every day" so he collected interest 10 times.

Deletebut it says he collected interest for 10 days. it doesn't meant that he kept it in there for ten days. it says he collected 10 days WORTH of interest..

DeleteNo, actually, it specifically says "10 days of collecting interest" so it's the full 40 neopoints.

DeleteGuess we'll see whose right in a week!

Deleteactually it is 18,026 because the problem say after 10 days OF COLLECTING INTEREST every day.

DeleteYes. It will be people who collected interest for 10 days as that is what it says in the problem :P

DeleteYo. Guys. Quick hint. 3.45 doesn't round up to 4.

Deletethe bank always rounds up, even if the decimal is under 5 -.-

Delete18,026, correct?

ReplyDeletethat's what i got (:

DeleteI got 18 491

ReplyDelete58441

ReplyDelete18,026

ReplyDeletedammit off to my sides to put in another few different answers

ReplyDeleteI think that's considered cheating.... but hey, so is giving out the answer so meh.... just be careful, you don't want to get frozen!

DeleteI got 36,214

ReplyDeleteTHIS GUY IS A GENIUS (and not only for getting the same answer as me!) hehehe

DeleteLol thanks. But I'm not a guy. :P

Delete18017

ReplyDeleteWell I just blew that. Didn't pay attention to the put it in proper format.

ReplyDeletewhat is the final awnser?

ReplyDelete18026 i believe

Deleteanswer is 18,028

ReplyDeleteafter you do the subtract 15% then add then subtract again

every day of interest is 6 neopoints.

it's 4.

Deleteyou subtract 15% of 20,000 , which equals 17000

then add 15% of 17000, which equals 19550

then subtract 8% of 19550, which equals 17986

plus 10 days of interest (at 4 nps all the way through)=18,026

I put 18,026 =X

ReplyDelete20,000-15%(3,000)=17,000

ReplyDelete17,000+15%(2,550)=19,550

19,550-8%(1,564)-17,986

Then put into the bank at 7% interest (Super Gold Plus), interest is 4np for each day (it never changes)

10 days of collecting interest=40np

17,986+40=18,026 neopoints.

Correct ;)

ReplyDeleteYou guys need to realize, you've got it all wrong. 15% of 20k is 3,000 neopoints. then 15% of 17000 (his new total nps) etc etc. then interest on a Junior Super Plus account at the end is only 7% a year. making it 30 nps total at the end.

ReplyDeleteWhy junior super plus?? he has over 10k, he can put it in a super gold plus.

Deleteyup this is actually correct SHHHHH

Deleteloool i got it all wrong hahah!

Deleteit says "at the maximum account level he can achieve each day" and i understood the maximum account level he can have, assuming he already has money in the bank.. so i assumed he got 12% of interest a day :( i blew it haha

Correct Interest is rounded up but still at 4 per day

ReplyDeleteI'm just checking the time stamp to see how close I am

ReplyDeleteI also got 18,026!! and I am a math major, so it will be embarrassing if I'm wrong.

ReplyDeleteI got 18,206. Pretty sure this is right since I just studied this last year.

ReplyDeletewrong

DeleteIt's 18,440 NP.

ReplyDeletei am pretty sure it is 21114

ReplyDeleteYa ok - wink wink

Deletethank all of ya' who explained how and gave answer

ReplyDeletewhy can't he have the maximum 12.5% interest account? These are simply winnings, it doesn't represent everything he has. It says that he has his own money prior to the winnings, and thus already had an account. I believe the answer is 18,056; same math as above but 7np per day.

ReplyDeleteThat's an interesting point. The conundrum says "he finally puts his Neopoints into a new bank account[,]" so I assumed the account started with a balance of 0 and contained no deposits other than what is mentioned in the conundrum. Again, I like the outside-the-box thinking and I could be wrong here, but I went with 18,026.

Deleteit says 'new' bank account so i assumed it didn't have anything else from before.

Deletei got 18,022

Deletewhats the final answer?

ReplyDelete18,026 is the right answer.

ReplyDeleteDebating on whether it's 18,022 because you don't collect interest on the first day; or if it's 18,026 because it's a full interest collection. I'm torn on this one. :P

ReplyDelete"After 10 days of collecting interest every day" so i'm assuming it's 10 days of collecting interest.

DeleteAHHHH!!!!!!! I just submitted 18,031 because I worked it all out and then physically did the problem in my own bank account. Only problem was I forgot to switch my account to super gold saver thing and it was on Diamond deposit!!!!!! The interest was 5np!!!!!!! Answer is definately 18,026 for those who are asking by the way :)

ReplyDeleteI got 18,026 too. I'm now sure it's right.

ReplyDeleteI used a calculator and SunnyNeo's bank interest calculator. I'm right. It's 18,440 NP.

ReplyDeleteI used a calculator and SunnyNeo's bank interest calculator also, but I know for sure that its 18,026np.

Delete18026- its the most common and its also what i got.

ReplyDeletelol, i never win the 20k on the wheel of excitement.. usually less than 500 np.....

I got 18026. Not hard at all :/

ReplyDeletesame with 18026, wonder how many got it though, seems like it'll be a small cash prize...

ReplyDeleteWell 4mil divided by 1432 (the prize) is 2793 with a decimal, so about 2800 people. Sadly, that means under 10% of the people who won got the trophy.

DeleteProbably not going to be a lot; I got the 18026 on my first try, so... Sigh. Looks like I'm not the first 250 either.

ReplyDeleteI didn't put the comma in 18026 so I won't get it right. How stupid, usually they want you to leave the comma out.

ReplyDeleteaww i thought it was 5 np/day. Another failure..

ReplyDeleteThis is flawed, the interest shouldn't be a constant 4NP. Sorry boys and girls.

ReplyDeletetoo bad 4 u, it is 18026

Deletei won 1432 np =P

NEW LC

ReplyDeleteHow many people got the answer to last week's LC correct, but were disqualified for not following directions? Round to the nearest five.

so is this just one of those lucky guess LCs

Deleteat least one XD including me

Delete74.3

ReplyDelete195

ReplyDeleteIs there any way to actually figure this out or is it just guesstimating?

ReplyDelete2794 got it correct. (taken from news)

ReplyDeleteHow do we figure out how many got disqualified for not following directions?

I'm guessing 5, I'm taking instructions to round literally.

ReplyDeleteHow the hell should we know the answer to that new conundrum? We ain't workers at Neopets...

ReplyDeleteI'm thinking its 0, if they got the answer correct they wouldnt have been disqualified, im taking it to mean that incorrect punctuation means an incorrect answer, even if the number was right.

ReplyDeleteoh i put 245 cuz....

ReplyDeleteHow many people got the answer TO (2) last week's LC correct, but were disqualified FOR (4) not following directions? Round to the nearest FIVE.(5)

=245.....i doubt ill get it right.....

omg thats amazing.i might write that

DeleteIn that case it would be 2425...

DeleteHow many people got the answer 2 last week's LC correct, but were disqualified 4 not following directions? Round 2 the nearest 5.

=2425
