pasta-de-dientes

There was a toothpaste factory providing qualified and exquisitely packaged products which were deeply loved by the customers. The sales rate had been climbing continuously in 10 years, with 10%~20% of uprise per year. But when it came to the  11th year, the sale stagnated, so did the following 2 years. To discuss the solutions, the boss opened an advanced meeting. During the meeting, the boss promised that whoever thought of a solution and raised the sale would get a 100000-reward. A young manager stood up and handed a piece of paper to the boss. After reading it, the boss signed a 100000-check immediately. The piece of paper wrote:” Widen the mouth of the toothpaste for 1 millimeter. Customers will squeeze out the same length of the toothpaste, which means every customer uses 1-millimeter-width more of the toothpaste. If so, how much more consumption will be created each day? “ The factory changed the packaging immediately. By the 14th year, the sales rate climbed up 32%.
