Here's an interesting fish story:
Jesse caught a prize fish last weekend. He was going to measure it, but
realized that his ruler was not long enough.
This is what he did:
He was able to measure the head, and discovered it was 9 centimeters long.
He measured the tail and found it was the length of the head, plus half the
length of the body.
If the body was the length of the head plus the tail,
what is the total length of the fish?
