    I will take 27 days to come out of that well for that man,

    He climbs 4 meter every day and slips 3 meter down that means he  climbs 1 meter in total each day, so like this on 26th day he would have climbed 26 meter and on 27th day he will climb 4 meeter again so total 30 meter he will climb in 27 days.

    Theoretically by 27th day. But he will dead by that time!

    I agree to disagree on the above answer, as on his 22 th day Leap, he will reach the 30m wall and instead of falling back 3 m, he will move on.

    On day 1 his max height is 4m
    On day 2 his max height is 5m
    On day N his max height is N+3m

    To reach 30m, N must be 27 (sorry about the inconsistent units for N!)
