Are You More Intelligent Than a Frog?

Algebra Level 1

Timmy, the tiny frog is stuck in a well $$30 m$$ deep. He tries to jump his way out. Each day he jumps $$3 m$$ up & sticks to the wall but at night, he slips $$2 m$$ down.

If Timmy started jumping from the bottom on $$1^{st}$$ May $$2014$$, on which day will he finally hop out of the well?

Details and Assumptions : Assume that Timmy does not slip back into the well after hopping out!
