Since he gives you 5 nickels for every nickel he gives you, and takes one away for every 5 that he has given you, then it goes something like this, (1 + (5 - 1)) = 5, (1+1+1+1+1 + (5 + 5+ 5+ 5 +5 - 1 -1- 1- 1-1)) = 25 so on and you are left with easy 5^n, n = num. of cycles (in this example 25*365*24*12), but this num. is waaaaay to high, so I'm guessin' I am not reading it right, or it's a trick question, more of a word puzzle than an actual math.
