Freddo, a frog, has a nice swim in the bottom of the well and decides that now is the time to get out. Freddo climbs 3 meters up the wall of the well and then rests. But the wall is slippery and he then slips down 1m. He is so tired he goes to sleep for the rest of the day. The next day he does the same thing. He climbs up 3m, slips back 1m, and goes to sleep. In fact he does this every day. How many days does it take him to climb 12 meters?
