Sonali decided to do a survey of birds in her garden over an hour.
In that time there were two more sparrows than blue tits, of which there were twice as many as robins, of which there were 80% fewer than the number of wagtails observed.
If these were the only species of bird present, and there was an average of eight birds of each species, how many blue tits did Sonali count?

Sparrow- s
Tit- t
Robin- r
Wagtail- w


s=t+2
r=s/2= 1/2*(t + 2)
r=w-80%---> w=1.8*r=1.8*1/2*(t+2)
t+s+r+w=4*8=32 --->
---> t+(t+2)+t/2+1+1.8*1/2*(t+2)=32 --->
---> t=8, s=10, r=5, w=9
Blue tits counted - 8

At a garden shop they're selling Magic Grass, a patch of sod that doubles in size every day. A man goes to buy some and figures that his garden is big enough that if he buys one patch, it will cover his garden in fourteen days, because each day it doubles in size. So he decides to speed up the process, and buys two patches of sod.

How many days will it now take for the Magic Grass to cover his garden?
