7 Flowers

I came to this conclude with trail and error method.
I tried 1 flower as opening bal and he donates 1 flower, i came with answer 1 extra left instead of 0.

Then further trying i found the no of flowers he enters with and donates are same the output will also remain same.

But then i tried to have 1 flower more to be donate than no of he enters with.

With this i came to conclusion of minimum 7 flowers.

A person has some money in his pocket. He visits 9 temples on the way, every temple has 100 steps. he puts $1 on each step while going up and as well as while coming back. On each temple he offers half of the money from his pocket to god, that way his pocket gets empty after 9th temple.

How much money he had initially?
