    I find WitchOfDoubt's answer meaningful here.

    Palustrius

    That was a very nicely analysed answer.
    I WAS thinking of 13th game, and I had assumed that player 1 won the FIRST six games.

    <p>He can't just not move a muscle. If his speed is defined, then he has to be moving, right?</p>

    <p>Quite simply put, consider it a walkway. They are flat moving belt on which people walk. So the total speed is velocity of belt+velocity of person.<br />
    Use simple logic here. Whatever is not defined, initialize with defaults.<br />
    The belt is now flat with each step being of 1 unit, and belt is composed of 30 units.<br />
    Simply stating<br />
    Va=2Vb</p>
    <p>If t= time, A covers 20 steps in t, while remaining 10 are covered by belt, to make a total distance travelled =30.</p>
    <p>So, Va=2V(belt)<br />
    <br />
    This means Vb=V(belt)<br />
    <br />
    Now, in time t1, B covers x steps, while belt also covers x steps since they have the same speed.</p>
    <p>To make a total distance of 30 units, x=15.<br />
    <br />
    So, B must take 15 steps.</p>

    <p>Yes it is.</p>
    <p>Reason:</p>
    <p>100! / 50! straightaway removes 25 even numbers and leaves 25 even numbers from 51 to 100.</p>
    <p>from these 25, 12 when divided by 2 give odd quotients, and 13 give even quotient.<br />
    so that leaves 25 2s and 13 even numbers spaced by 2, (26 to 50)</p>
    <p>out of these 13, 7 when divided by 2, give odd quotients, and 6 give even quotient.</p>
    <p>so that leaves, 12 2s and 6 even numbers spaced by 2, (14 to 24)</p>
    <p>out of these 6, 3 when divided by 2 give odd quotients, and 3 give even quotient.</p>
    <p>so that leaves, 6 2s and 3 even numbers spaced by 2 (8,12)</p>
    <p>out of these 3, 1 when divided by 2 gives odd quotient, and 2 give even quotient.</p>
    <p>so that leaves 3 2s and 2 even numbers spaced by 2 (4,6)</p>
    <p> </p>
    <p>out of these 2, 1 when divided by 2 gives odd quotient, and 1 gives even quotient.</p>
    <p>so that leaves one 2 and one even number, 2.</p>
    <p>which finally gives 1.</p>
    <p> </p>
    <p>So all 2s in denominator get used up giving a final integer answer.</p>
    <div> </div>
    <p>like 52, 54, 56, 58, 60</p>
    <p>/2 26 27 28 29 30</p>
    <p> 26 28 30</p>
    <p>/2 13 14</p>
    <p> </p>
