Solution:

He will be able to smoke 13 cigars.

He makes 9 originals from the 27 butts he found, and after he smokes them he has 9 butts left for another 3 cigars. And then he has 3 butts for another cigar. So 9+3+1=13

3 butts = 1 cigar + 1 butt (after cigar is smocked)
=>
1 cigar = 3 butts - 1 butt = 2 butts
=>
# of cigars = # of butts / 2
=>
27 / 2 = 13 cigars + 1 butt.

27cig butts=9 original
9cig butts=3 original
3 cig butts=1 original
therefore 9+3+1=13.
here one original cig= 3 cig butts

Sorry I'm not on my usual account. I'm away from my usual computer.

This was an easy, easy puzzle. Something I would give to my cousin in grade school. Hmm... maybe I will!

I got that he can smoke up to 13 cigars.

From 27 cigar butts he can make 9 cigars.
From 9 cigar butts he can make 3 cigars.
From 3 cigar butts he can make one last sweet, sweet cigar.

9 + 3 + 1 = 13 cigars smoked with one lonely cigar butt leftover...
