The tree had grown 8 inches over the last year. During the following years it doubled its growth rate annually. How high was the heart on their tenth anniversary?

Nice & tricky. You have to know a little bit about trees to get this one. I liked it.

Should be in Trivia or Situation

beyonce123, Trivia wouldn't be right because there's a trick in the teaser. If it were in Trivia, it would be too easy. Situation isn't right either because it doesn't have anything to do with that category.
