Each one saved approximately 30 percent on fuel consumption. "Aha,"said the brilliant inventor, "I will use only 10 percent of the fuel I now use and save a great deal of money." Unfortunately, it didn't work out that way. How much fuel did he save, assuming that all the savings were independent and cumulative? ANSWER: He saved 65.7 percent on fuel, using 34.3 percent of what he did before.
