The Farmer
Thanks Steve

Once there was a farmer who was taking apples to town for sale at a local market.
On the way to town, he had to pay four tolls.
Each toll cost one-half his apples plus half an apple.
After paying all four tolls, the farmer arrived in town with no apples left to sell.

Question : How many apples did the farmer start with?
