Thanks for pointing it out.... Read below the correct puzzle:Spoiler for
A man needs to pay his rent daily and was out of money, but found that his rent was worth about one gold link on his chain per day. What is the fewest number of cuts he can make in his 23-link chain to pay the rent for up to 23 days?
