**Thank you so much** sky harbor602 and mmrl for taking your time and patience to answer me but i still don?t understand it...

If it costs me 1000 apples to get the dragon to 7...shouldn?t it really be 830? (Because 10+40+80+200+500=830? ...not 1000?)

I can never get it to work out for me ....

I am rewarded by 4000 apples to finish chapter 5 .....so, chart is saying i only spent 1000 to get him there? ...

how did i get to the 1000?

Not 10+40+80+200+500, because that = 830, right?

What am i missing here?

So, it would appear to pay me to get that reward because the game is saying i only used 1000 to get there so, i have a gift of 3,000 apples ...

is this correct?

But i still don?t understand how they get to the 1000 on that chart
