A man plucks some flowers. while returning there were 7 gates on his way there he gave half of the flowers he had and the man on the gate returned him one flower. He did the same on all 7 gates and at last he had two flowers left with him then tell me how many flowers he had plucked?



The man had 130 flowers at the very beginning 

1 1 1
How? Pls explain......
 x/(2*7) + 7 = 2 Solving it we get 126
i think so the answer is 2 he plucked only 2 flowers  at beginning
