A boy sells oranges from door to door. One day while on his rounds he sold 1/2 an orange more than half his orange to the first customer. To the second customer he sold 1/2 an orange more than half of the remainder and to the third and last customer he sold 1/2 an orange more than half she now had, leaving her none. Can you tell the number of oranges he originally had? Oh by the way he never had to cut an orange
