Let the length of a domino be 1. On the edge of a table, a single domino can extend out a distance of 1/2 before being unbalanced. A stack of two dominoes can extend out a distance of 3/4. How large of an overhang can you create with 5? 10? N? How many dominoes are needed before the top domino is one full horizontal length away from the edge of the table, for a full overhang length of 2? Each domino must be placed in the same orientation (don't rotate the dominoes or stand them on end.)
