Re: Program regularity

I'm also happy to see that PE is back to a weekly schedule. To all the team, thank you for keeping it up! The first hundred problems are much easier than more recent ones. Someone just joining the site would be able to enjoy those for a fair amount of time, without having to look at the higher numbe...

Re: Problem 575

I think I have it now.

Let's say Leonhard is in room 42. That could be because one "turn" ago he was in room 1042 (or 41 or 43) and moved, or he was in 42 and didn't move.

Is that right?

Re: Problem 575

In my example "move, move, move, stop for X minutes", could he be anywhere except where he stopped? I agree that the stop duration doesn't matter.

Re: Problem 575

Let's say that when the program determines Leonhard should stay in a room, he stays for X minutes. Let's also say that when I'm looking, he's stopped somewhere, spending his X minutes. If he arrives in a room, does he immediately check if he should wander further? If so, he could do something like "...

Re: Problem 575

Thanks. So that means that I'm looking for the probability that:
A. His wandering led him to a square numbered room (1, 4, 9, 16, etc.) and
B. The program said stay there (for now).

Right?

Problem 575

Two questions:
1. Did Leonhard start in a particular room (for example, room 1)?
2. If Leonhard's program says stay in a room, does he stay forever?

I'm pretty sure I understand the problem, but not the purpose of the variable p. In all of the references p has the same value as m. Am I missing something?
