How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
Details and Assumptions:
A "wood" is a tree.
The wood chuck alternates in choosing whether or not he would like to chuck a tree. For example, if he chucks tree 1, he will not chuck tree 2, and he will chuck tree 3, and so on.
If a woodchuck decides to chuck a tree, then he will chuck the entire tree.
Each tree has a volume of 10,000 cubic feet.
The entire forest has exactly 1,000 trees.
The woodchuck does not stop until he decides what to do with every single tree in the forest.
What is the total volume of wood, in cubic yards, the woodchuck has chucked at the end of his serial wood-chucking spree? Round your answer to the nearest whole number.
