Let’s do a little school math exercise.
Justin has one dog. To be a good citizen, Justin picks up after his dog.
Environmentally conscious, Justin purchases bio-degradable waste bags. The bio-degradable waste bags break down after precisely two years. They literally disintegrate in to small, unusable pieces.
Justin purchases large packs of dog waste bags. Justin found a good deal on 1,000 bio-degradable, environmentally safe waste bags.
Justin’s dog, unless she is feeling unwell, does her business about once a day, and so the bags are used at an average rate of 1.2 bags per day.
How many days will it be before Justin, on a dark winter’s night, at 4AM, tired, and bleary eyed, walking a dog with extreme diarrhea, inadvertently picks up something he didn’t want to touch due to a bio-degradable bag breaking down? Show your work.
