Station 1

Put two dots in the rightmost box of the machine.

Make those 2 dots explode!

Stabilize the machine by making the dots explode.

Find the $1 \leftarrow 2$ machine code for the number $4$.

Make the dots loaded in this machine explode until the machine becomes stable.

You will need to do more than one explosion!

Make the dots explode as much as possible to find the code for the number $6$.

Find the $1 \leftarrow 2$ machine code for the number $13$!

Hint: You can erase dots as needed by moving them outside of the boxes.

Add the dots to the rightmost box of the $1 \leftarrow 2$ machine to find which number has code $11001$.

Wow! You have mastered the $1 \leftarrow 2$ machine!

Now you're ready for the $1 \leftarrow 3$ machine!
