for 5 disks, it will take **31 moves**: 2M + 1 = 2(15) + 1 = 31.

## What is the formula for the Tower of Hanoi?

The original Tower of Hanoi puzzle, invented by the French mathematician Edouard Lucas in 1883, spans “base 2”. That is – the **number of moves of disk number k is 2^(k-1)**, and the total number of moves required to solve the puzzle with N disks is 2^N – 1.

## What is the recursive formula to determine the amount of moves needed for N amount of discs?

Therefore, the bottom disk must make at least 2 moves. Before the bottom disk can move to peg A, the top n-1 disks must all be moved from peg S to peg D. … Therefore, the total number of moves required to move the pile of n disks is 2 + 2f(n-1) + g(n-1), so we have the recursion formula **f(n) = 2 + 2f(n-1) + g(n-1).**
