let's remember: Potato required 3 CDs, Woody 7 and Sarge 14 and Etch 21.
Also, we find Woody on 1 DVD, Sarge on 2 and Etch on 3 DVDs. 
So Lenny will require 7 DVDs, Lenny+1 14 and Lenny+2 21 DVDs. You can multiply these numbers with 7, and you will have the count of CD-isos. (Lenny 49, Lenny+1 98 and Lenny+2 147)
