Default can anyone help with this problem? i'm sooo frustrated with this!!

A boy has 45 watermelons in the desert. He needs to get them across to
the Oasis fair, 15 miles away. He can only carry 15 watermelons at a
time, and he eats one watermelon every mile he walks, including walking
back to where he started from. He can also leave watermelons at any
mile he has walked, but no fractions of a mile. How many watermelons
can he possibly take to the fair?
