10. 10. The Legend of the Tower of Hanoi (or Brahma) <ul><li>Legend says that at the beginning of time the priests in the temple were given a stack of 64 gold disks, each one a little smaller than the one beneath it.

The priests worked very efficiently, day and night. When they finished their work, the myth said, the temple would crumble into dust and the world would vanish. </li></ul><ul><li>How long would this take, assuming that one move would take an average of 1 second? </li></ul>
