Number Difference and Erasure Puzzle (Posted on 2015-09-14) Difficulty: 2 of 5
The numbers 1, 3, 32, 33,...,310 are written on a blackboard.
We are allowed to erase any two numbers and write their difference instead (this is always a nonnegative integer.)
After this procedure has been repeated ten times, only a single number will remain.
What values could this number have?
