I was invited to spend a seven-day vacation fishing on
Bayes Lake, and had to select one of these options for

 Each day, I was allowed to catch fish until the next fish I caught was heavier than any previous fish I caught that day, or
 Each day, I was allowed to catch fish until the total weight of fish caught that day exceeds 10 pounds.

Now, assume that the fish in Bayes Lake had random weights
between 0 pounds and 10 pounds plus the costs of the two
assuming I wanted to catch the maximum amount of fish?
