than 30 coconuts. On the way he passes through 30 checkpoints

and on each checkpoint he has to give 1 coconut for each sack he is carrying. Maximum how many coconuts he can save when he reach last check point.

or 26 when "he reach last checkpoint"

The first 10 checkpoints require 3 coconuts each, which empties his first sack.

The next 15 checkpoints require 2 coconuts each, exhausting his second sack.

The last 5 take 1 coconut each, so he's left with 25 coconuts.

Great puzzle and great site!

he leaves 3 coconuts for the first 29 checkpoints, so he only has 3 when he getsd to the last.

First 10 checkpoints take 3 coconuts each.

Next 15 checkpoints take 2 coconuts each.

Last 5 checkpoints take 1 coconut each.

0... it says he gives 1 coconut FOR EACH sack he is carrying. He has 3 sacks, and 30 checkpoints to clear. He has 30 coconuts in each sack before he leaves.
