#50 means plugging into the formula 0.5(n)+1

 

So 0.5(50) + 1 = 26

 

THe question asks #(#(#50))

 

So you do #50 first, giving an answer of 26.

 

Then you do #26, which is 14

 

Then you do #14, which the answer is 8.

Define #N by the formula #N = 0.5(N) + 1.
Calculate #(#(#50)).

 

\(\begin{array}{|rcll|} \hline \mathbf{\#N} &=& \mathbf{\dfrac{N}{2} + 1} \\\\ \#50 &=& \dfrac{50}{2} + 1 \\ &=& 26 \\\\ \#26 &=& \dfrac{26}{2} + 1 \\ &=& 14 \\\\ \#14 &=& \dfrac{14}{2} + 1 \\ &=& 8 \\\\ \mathbf{ \#(\#(\#50)) } &=& \mathbf{8} \\ \hline \end{array}\)
