Whenever two chameleons of the same color met, they would fight to the death and the victor would become stronger and change color (eg white to yellow). Black chameleons would fight eternally.
The small island of Ula was initially populated by a group of fighting chameleons. For this group
a) the colors present each had an equal number of chameleons (for example, group = 3 black, 3 green and 3 yellow)
b) it was not made up entirely of white chameleons
After all the possible fighting was done, there remained one black and green and no blue or orange chameleons.
How many white chameleons remained in the island? Prove it.
