1, it should be evident that J (n) runs through the odd numbers consecutively restarting at 1 each time n is a power of 2. In particular, for a ≥ 0, let 2a ≤ n < 2a+1 . Hence n = 2a + t where 0 ≤ t ≤ 2a . 1: J (2 a + t) = 2t + 1 . 1: Note that J (1 ) = 1 as claimed. Now we will establish the proposition by using induction on the exponent a. Let a = 1 . If t = 0 , then n = 2 and J (2 ) = 1 . If t = 1 , then n = 3 and J (3 ) = 3 . Hence the proposition is true for a = 1 . 3 holds for some a − 1 and all such appropriate values of t.

This is case (b), where the difference is 11 − 9 = 2. So Amy moves to the second position (3, 5) by removing six counters from each pile. Suppose Andrew now removes one counter from the 3’s pile, resulting in (2, 5). This is case (a) and so Amy looks for the number 2 in the table. She moves to position (1, 2) by removing four counters from the 5’s pile. 6 n 1 A B 1 100 101 1001 10000 10001 10100 10101 100001 100100 100101 10 1000 1010 10010 100000 100010 101000 101010 1000010 1001000 1001010 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 must move to (1, 1), (0, 2), or (0,1) from which Amy will remove the remaining counters and win the game.

The Pythagoreans classified the natural numbers into various categories and attributed religious and mystical meanings to them. For example, one was the generator of all numbers and the source of reason. Even numbers were female and odd numbers beginning with three were male. Four was the number for justice and squaring of accounts. Five, being the sum of the first female and male numbers, represented marriage. Our starting point for this chapter is the number six. Six was the number of creation that interestingly meshes perfectly well with the Judeo-Christian account of the genesis of the universe.
