- The following problem is from both the 2013 AMC 12B #7 and 2013 AMC 10B #13, so both problems redirect to this page.
Problem
Jo and Blair take turns counting from to one more than the last number said by the other person. Jo starts by saying , so Blair follows by saying . Jo then says , and so on. What is the number said?
Solution
