In a Chinese game show, 50% of the players are eliminated each day. If the show starts with 1,000 players, to the nearest integer, how many players will be present at the end of the 8th day of play

OpenStudy (anonymous):

okay so 1,000 people divided by half each day for 8 days = 1. 500 2. 250 3. 175 4. 87.5 5. 43.75 6. 21.875 7. 10.9 8. 5.45 :D ;D
