## Question

In this again i'll explain rotating table.

Consider a Rotating Table numbered 1 to 5 in a circular manner.(we'll call it RT5)

The task is to note down the new numbers indicated by the Pointer.

Initially the pointer points to No.1.

So No.1 is noted.

Then the table is step 2 rotated i.e next No. pointed is No. 3.(Pointer not being part of table)

No. 3 is noted.

Next rotation is Step 3.So pointer points to No.1 again.Note down No.1 again.

Now the Next rotation is by Step 4 i.e. No.5.

Note down No.5 in list.

And So go on incrementing and updating the list....

Now the Game....

U have been selected to play the rotating table game.

In this game a button press rotates the table by a Step value.

i.e. begining with No.1,

then step 2,step 3 and so on..

Rules of the game are

1)The game begins with a button press and the pointer points to No.1 of rotating table.(all tables)

2)The player has to push the button to rotate the table.(Step rotated)

3)The player has to note down the nos.(begining with 1....) and prepare a list.

4)The game stops whenever mean or median value of the maximum value present on the table is hit.

i.e. if table is RT5 game stops when 3 is hit.(median value for 1-5)

if it is RT10 then game stops when 5 is hit.(mean for 1-10)

2)Value of push=2^n.......(n is equal to number of times the button press)

3)Gain from table is calculated as...

Table Gain=max^(sum)

max=greatest no. in the list.

sum=sum of all distinct numbers in list excluding max

4)Actual prize money=Table Gain/value of push.

e.g For RT5

button press>>game starts>>pointer points No.1(note down)>>button press>>No.3(note down)

But 3 being median value for RT5 so game stops

here push value=2^2=4

Table gain=3^(1)=3 (Since only 1 is present otherwise sum of distinct no. in list excluding max value in list)

actual prize=3/4

You have to choose from following tables...

i) RT7192

ii) RT7196

iii) RT8192

iV) RT8196

So On Which Table would you Play and why?

I was sleepy when i posted.....

Forgive me for the inconvenience...

I wanted to add one more option

You have to choose from following tables...

i) RT 7192

ii) RT 7196

iii) RT 8192

iV) RT 8196

v)RT 8200.....(**5th option**)

So On Which Table would you Play and why?

If I programmed this right, this is the outcome

RT7192: Gain 7192^7,387,596 / Push 2^5575

RT7196 Gain 7192^3,202,103 / Push 2^1028

RT8192 Gain 8191^33,542,145 / Push 2^8191

RT8196 Gain 8190^2,487,708 / Push 2^683

RT8200 Gain 8200^7,387,596 / Push 2^5575

Let me know if these values are on.. if so I'll leave the actual values to someone else

@SleepingGiant>>>>Your calculations for 4 tables are correct....

i guess you got one incorrect due to a typo mistake...

Value of Gain

Gain=(7192^5077538)/(2^2232)

Also notice that practically playing on any table will win you a fortune.

But still can you determine which table gain is maximum?

comparative order of gain for all tables?

Also there's a logical way to get the answer!

Observing pattern for different values of n (RT n).

(Pattern refers to the list obtained).

And then choosing the appropriate option from given tables.
