Sneha has some chocolates. Each day she divides the chocolate in two equal halves. Then she eats one half and remains another half for the next day. If she can not divide in tow equal halves the she gives one chocolate to her cat. At the $11^{th}$ day all the chocolate has over and she gave chocolate to her cat in first two days and the $5^{th}$ days. How many chocolates she had?
