When it came to sheep – Eric was very impatient, particularly at shearing time.
One day the shearers arrived. All the sheep were rounded up into pens ready to be shorn.
On this particular day there were 25 sheep waiting to be shorn. Eric was at the back of the line. Eric decided that he would not wait his turn. Each time the shearer had shorn one sheep - Eric would sneak past two other sheep in the line.
How many sheep will be shorn before Eric gets his turn?
Your job is to figure out how many sheep will be shorn before Eric each time if there is between 1 and 25 sheep in the line. Work with a partner and see what you can find out
