The athletics director at Peter’s school has created a message system that is used to notify team players in the event a game has to be canceled or rescheduled. The message system is initiated when the director calls two captains.
During the second stage of the message system, the captains each call two players.
During the third stage of the message system, these players each call two other players.
The message system continues until all players have been notified.
If there are 50 players on the teams, how many stages will it take to notify all of the players?
