17. Alice and Bob play the following coins-on-a-stack game. 100 coins are stacked one above the other. One of them is a special (gold) coin and the rest are ordinary coins. The goal is to bring the gold coin to the top by repeatedly moving the topmost coin to another position in the stack. Alice starts and the players take turns. A turn consists of moving the coin on the top to a position I below the top coin (for some I between 0 and 100). We will call this an i-move (thus a 0-move implies doing nothing). The proviso is that an i-move cannot be repeated; for example once a player makes a 2-move, on subsequent turns neither player can make a 2-move. If the gold coin happens to be on top when its a players turn then the player wins the game. Initially, the gold coin is the third coin from the top. Then

(a) In order to win, Alices first move should be a 1-move.

(b) In order to win, Alices first move should be a 0-move.

(c) Alice has no winning strategy.

(d) In order to win, Alices first move can be a 0-move or a 1-move.

Each lichen grows approximately in the shape of a circle. The relationship between the diameter of this circle and the age of the lichen can be approximated with the formula: d=10*(t 13) for t > 13, where d represents the diameter of the lichen in millimeters, and t represents the number of years after the ice has disappeared. Using the above formula, calculate the diameter of the lichen, 45 years after the ice has disappeared.
