**Logic!**

2 High and 2 Low

You’re playing a guessing game. You guess a number, and I either say “too high” or “too low”. However, you can only guess “too high” twice, and “too low” twice. That is, you are allowed up to 5 guesses total (2 wrong in either direction, and the final guess). With these rules, if I told you to guess a number between 1 and N, what is the highest possible N such that you are guaranteed to guess correctly? (Using an optimal strategy, of course.)

*The last one*

666 crazed devil worshipers stand in a circle (or 666-gon), to summon the EVEN DEMON. After a long chant, the monster appears. “WHO DARES SUMMON I FROM MY LONG SLUMBER? I WILL NOW SEQUENTIALLY MURDER ALL BUT ONE OF YOU, GOING AROUND THE CIRCLE, SKIPPING 1 PERSON, KILLING THE NEXT, THEN SKIPPING ONE PERSON, AND KILLING THE NEXT, UNTIL ONLY 1 IS LEFT!”

You are the cult’s leader, and you are very concerned. But luckily, also very smart.

Okay, so when looking at this problem, we don’t want to write out 666 numbers and start crossing them all out. So we think about simpler possibilities and try to break it down. First, with 2 people, the first survives. We see that this is also true with 4, 8, 16, and any power of two. Now, 666 isn’t a power of two. However, maybe we can find a way to make it one. To do this, we will need to think flexibly. In this 666 scenario, once 1 person is killed, we are left with 665 people. From here, we can reconsider the scenario, but rather than starting at person #1, we are starting with person #3. If we repeat this process, we can make it a power of 2! The closest is 2^9, so let us do that. 666-2^9= 154 people killed. That means that the index of the new first person when 512 ( or 2^9) are remaining is 1 + (2*154) = 309, and that 309 is the correct awnser!
