Brainteaser Alert!!!

Try out this classic brainteaser called The Towers of Hanoi. 
The game called the Towers of Hanoi was invented by the French mathematician Edouard Lucas in 1883 and since then it has been both a popular puzzle and a well-known mathematical problem that is an excellent illustration of the general concept of recursion. This puzzle is known by most mathematicians and a very large number of people who like either puzzles or elementary mathematical problems. The problem is that you have to move the tower of wooden wooden circles - one at a time- from one post  to another without placing a larger piece on a smaller piece. Sounds easy enough until you try it.  Here is the link to play it online:

Let us know what you think!!!
