- Warm-Up Problem: Imagine that all the numbers from 1 to 100 inclusive are written on the blackboard. At every stage, you are allowed to erase two numbers that appear on the board (let’s call the numbers you erased x and y) and
in place of the two erased numbers, write the number x+y+xy. Repeat this operation until only a single number remains. What are the possible values for that remaining number?
