• Efficiency of treadmill Vs natural walking?

    Just how energy-efficient is a treadmill in burning up calories? Given that the treadmill is moving, and that we are keeping pace with it, how much "distance" on a treadmill do you have to achieve to burn up the same amount of energy when you walk naturally along the footpath? Does anyone have real figures please?

  • Tower of Hanoi?

    When I was at school, my Maths teacher showed me a way to decipher the correct moves for the TOH. He wrote out the binary numbers in sequence, and then "read" them. I think it went from right to left? This would show you which moves to make for minimum number. Does anyone know of this technique please?
