How many mice are required to find the poisoned can?

Asked By: ganta.jyostna
| Asked On: Dec 23rd, 2011

If there are 30 cans out of them one is poisoned if a person tastes very little he will die within 14 hours so if there are mice to test and 24 hours to test, how many mice are required to find the poisoned can?

Answered by: a on: Aug 22nd, 2014

For 30 cans @ 1 mice per can it needs 30*14 hours to get the result. so total minimum with 30 mice is 420 hours required. since we have 24 hours time left to find out . minimum mice required would be 420 hours/24 hours would be 17.5 mice or 18 mice to do the job in 24 hours
