# How many apples did he have when he began his deliveries?

##
A farmer has to make 8 stops in delivering apples. He begins with exactly the number of apples he needs for these 8 deliveries. At the first stop, he delivers half of the apples he has plus 1/2 of an apple. At each of the next 7 stops, he delivers half of the remaining apples plus 1/2 of an apple. When he is finished he has no apples left, and none have been lost/damaged when making the deliveries.
