I think so.

anyway an easier puzzle:



A high school has a some what strange headmaster. On the first day, he has his students perform an odd opening day ceremony:

There are one thousand lockers and one thousand pupils in the school. The headmaster asks the first pupil to go to every locker and open it. Then he has the second student go to every second locker and close it. The third goes to every third locker and, if it is closed, he opens it, and if it is open, he closes it. The fourth pupil does this to every fourth locker, and so on. After the process is completed with the thousandth pupil, how many lockers are open?





PS: max got it again (your annoying you know that)

Spoiler:

Going with the method "solve for a smaller group, then extrapolate" here.
6 students
c-c-c-c-c-c (Start) 0 open, 6 closed
o-o-o-o-o-o (First) 6 open, 0 closed
o-c-o-c-o-c (Second) 3 open, 3 closed
o-c-c-c-o-o (Third) 3 open, 3 closed
o-c-c-o-o-o (Fourth) 4 open, 2 closed
o-c-c-o-c-o (Fifth) 3 open, 3 closed
o-c-c-o-c-c (Sixth) 2 open, 4 closed

10 students:
c-c-c-c-c-c-c-c-c-c (Start) 0 open, 10 closed
o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o (First) 10 open, 0 closed
o-c-o-c-o-c-o-c-o-c (Second) 5 open, 5 closed
o-c-c-c-o-o-o-c-c-c (Third) 4 open, 6 closed
o-c-c-o-o-o-o-o-c-c (Fourth) 6 open, 4 closed
o-c-c-o-c-o-o-o-c-o (Fifth) 6 open, 4 closed
o-c-c-o-c-c-o-o-c-o (Sixth) 5 open, 5 closed
o-c-c-o-c-c-c-o-c-o (Seventh) 4 open, 6 closed
o-c-c-o-c-c-o-o-c-o (Eigth) 5 open, 5 closed
o-c-c-o-c-c-o-o-o-o (Ninth) 6 open, 4 closed
o-c-c-o-c-c-o-o-o-c (Tenth) 5 open, 5 closed

At half, the division seems 500-500, so I'm going to go with that. After number 500, every open after 500 becomes a close and vice versa. So: 500 open, 500 closed?

I could also bruteforce this on my computer. xD

i think we should all break out our programming skills and see if we can solve this problem using java/C++/pascal etc.

I think Python would be sufficient. Just use a list and a loop to manipulate the list... Very Happy
