One programmer draws on a sheet of paper several circles in a line, representing coins, and puts his thumb on the first circle, covering the rest with his hand. Then he asks another programmer to guess how many different head-tail combinations are possible if someone flips all the (imaginary) coins on the paper. The second programmer, without knowing the number of circles, takes the pen and writes down a number. Then the first programmer lifts his hand and sees that the correct answer is written on the paper. How did the second programmer manage to do this?

The second programmer wrote down "1" in front of the first circle. When the second programmer lifted his hand, he saw the number "10...00", which is exactly the number of possible head-tail combinations in binary system.

A chess king travels over an entire chess board, passing through every square once, and without intersecting his path, gets back to the initial square. Show that the king has made at most 36 diagonal moves.

The king must visit the 28 perimeter squares in order; otherwise he will create a portion of the board which is inaccessible for him. However, he can not travel from one square to a neighboring one using only diagonal moves. Therefore he must make at least 28 horizontal/vertical moves and at most 64 - 28 = 36 diagonal moves.

Detective Roy Omoshi (upper right) is chasing a dangerous criminal (lower left) through a destroyed maze. King Kong is trying to help Roy by putting together all the pieces of the maze, so that the detective can safely traverse it. Analyze the picture and find the sequence of pieces Roy Omoshi will pass through before he catches the criminal. Some pieces (#1, #7, #8) consist of multiple horizontal segments, so it is possible that the detective visits them multiple times.

The starting and ending positions of 7 chess pieces are shown on the board. Find the trajectories of the pieces, if you know that they do not overlap and completely cover the board.*Notes: The pieces can not backtrack. Two trajectories can intersect diagonally but can not pass through the same square. Only the Knight's has a discontinuous trajectory.*

A shepherd takes his two sheep every day to a 7x7 lawn, so that they can eat the fresh grass there. However, there are five wolves on the lawn which are preying on the poor sheep. The shepherd decided to build a closed, non-intersecting fence around the sheep, so that all wolves end up on the outside. He planned the shape of the fence carefully and installed several signs showing the number of fence pieces around the corresponding cells. Can you figure out the shape of the fence the shepherd is going to build?
