Multiplying Mice

Mice are famous for their ability to multiply at breakneck speeds. The type of mouse we have here gives birth once a month, birthing 3 babies each time. Baby mice mature and can give birth two months after they are born.

You picked up one of these darling baby mice at the pet shop and brought it home the day after it was born. In 10 months from now, how many mice will you have?

hmm...........wouldn't it be presuming tat the mouse didn't die, it would still be one because the mouse can only give birth after 2 months, and can't get pregnant by itself. There only 1 mouse or zero if it dies:P
