Brain Teaser 2/21/2013
The local recycling plant had a contract requiring anyone who obtained recycled bottles for storage from them, to bring them back to be recycled again. The plant could make one new bottle from every seven bottles returned. One week, on Monday, they got 343 bottles to recycle. Assuming that everybody brought back all the empties, how many could they eventually remake from the 343?
