At dawn on Monday a snail fell into a bucket that was 12 inches deep.
During the day it climbed up 3 inches, however, during the night it fell back 2 inches.
On what day did the snail finally manage to climb out of the bucket?

Hint: The answer isn't 12 days.
The following Wednesday, nine days later.
At dawn on Monday the snail was at the bottom. Each day it climbed 3 inches, and dropped 2 inches over night, so at the start of the next day it was 1 inch higher, so:
Monday morning - 0 inches.
Tuesday morning - 1 inch.
Wednesday morning - 2 inches.
Thursday morning - 3 inches.
Friday morning - 4 inches.
Saturday morning - 5 inches.
Sunday morning - 6 inches.
Monday morning - 7 inches.
Tuesday morning - 8 inches.
Wednesday morning - 9 inches.
The snail then climbed the remaining 3 inches during Wednesday, and escaped.
