# Three friends each create 4 bags of starter bread dough. after ten days, each of those four bags is then divided into four more bags

Three friends each create 4 bags of starter bread dough. after ten days, each of those four bags is then divided into four more bags of dough. how many days pass before 192 bags of dough are created?

To begin, each of the friends have made 4 bags of dough. This gives 12 bags at the outset. After 10 days, all 12 bags are made into (4*12) bags, or 48 bags. After 20 days, the 48 bags are made into (48*4), or the required 192 bags. After 20 days, then, the friends have the needed 192 bags.

4×4×4 So 3 days = 64. Thats for one person but there are 3 people. 64×3=192

55 days

Step-by-step explanation:

Number of bags of dough is 192

You have to calculate the number of days.

After 10 days, 4 bags are divided into 4 more bags: 4 + 4 =8

After 20 days: 8 + 8 = 16

After 30 days: 16 + 16 = 32

After 40 days: 32 + 32 = 64

After 50 days: 64 + 64 = 128

After 55 days: 128 + 64 = 192 (5 days will be considered since it is doubled in 10 days and this time it is divided into half the amount)

Therefore, 55 days pass before 192 bags of dough are created.

!!

it is 48

Step-by-step explanation:

Because if three kids create 4 bread dough then it would be 12

If you add together all of the bags in total, you would have 24 bags (8+8+8), and the 3 friends will have four bags each in total. After another ten days you will have 96 bags of dough (24 x 4). After another ten days there will be 384 bags of dough, so at this point there will be 192 bags of dough available, assuming that the friends continue with the same method.
The answer is 20 days, we can solve this in following way:
Each friend creates 4 bags of dough and after ten days four bags divided into four more bags means:
3 friends x 4 bags = 12 bags  and 12 bags  x 4 = 48 bags
so in next 10 days, the 48 bags will be further divided into 4, so
48 x 4 = 192 bags
10 days  + next 0 days  = 20 days
so 20 days is the answer.
To begin, each of the friends have made 4 bags of dough. This gives 12 bags at the outset. After 10 days, all 12 bags are made into (4*12) bags, or 48 bags. After 20 days, the 48 bags are made into (48*4), or the required 192 bags. After 20 days, then, the friends have the needed 192 bags.
