**Homework for Tuesday night (6/24) due Wednesday
morning (one per team):**

1) Find the general equation that predicts how many moves are required for n disks in the Tower of Hanoi game.

2) Use it to calculate the time it would take to complete a game with n = 25 disks, at a rate of 1 move per second. Is it longer or shorter than the average human lifetime (lets say 75 years)?

3) Use it to calculate the time it would take to complete a game with n = 64 disks, at a rate of 1 move per second. Is it longer or shorter than the accepted age of the universe (about 15 billion years)?

4) The 3 points, 1/2 distance chaos game rules produce the Sierpinski Gasket we saw in class. What is your prediction (emerging pattern) for a 4 points, 1/2 distance game (imagine using the corners of a square instead of a triangle)?

5) Read Chapter 3 (pages 81-118) of Gleick's Chaos and answer (type them in MS Word) the questions posted at:
