When Mike and Milly were first going out, they carved their initials inside a heart on a tree trunk 3 feet off the ground. Exactly one year later, they married. 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?


Answer

3 feet. Trees grow from the top, not the base (trunk)!
