All alone on a hike, you slide down a steep 20 foot embankment and are fortunate not to break any bones. You also happen to have enough food and water in your backpack to survive for a while, but you don't want to live there, so you decide to start climbing out. The embankment is steep and hard to climb, and your backpack full of supplies is pretty heavy, so each day you manage to climb up five feet, but you slide back down four feet when you rest each night. At this rate, how long before you get to the top?
