k so I have a bet going with one of my friends, and here's the deal.

If you stack poker chips in a staircase-like fashion, lets say going left to right like this:

____0000

___0000_

__0000__

_0000___

0000____

I say that you cant get to the point where the top poker chips left-edge is further right than the bottom chips right edge. My friend says that the chips can go infinitely far in the right direction if you have enough of them. Are either of us right? an explanation would be great to... thanks!
