(Money Puzzles)

in a straight line. The distance between the first and second potatoes
was to be one yard, between the second and third three yards, between
the third and fourth five yards, between the fourth and fifth seven

one at a time, the basket being placed beside the first potato. How far
would the boy have to travel to accomplish the feat of picking them all
