I take half of Jeremy's money and divide it into 7 equal piles. Six of these piles b**w away in the wind, but from the seventh pile, I take 2 dollars and hand Jeremy the rest, which is 8 dollars. How much money, in dollars, did Jeremy begin with?

Work backwards !

 

7th pile is   8+2=10  

So what now?
