An online video game tournament begins with 1024 players. Four players play in each  game. In each game there is only one winner, and only the winner advances to the  next round. How many games will the winner play?

For round one there are 1024/4 = 256 winners, 256/4 = 64, 64/4=16, 16/4=4, 4/4 = 1. thats 5 games.

There are 4 players per round, not 2. Your logic is correct though.

Everytime, the total number of players is divided by 4

1024 = 4^5

The winner  will  play

log 1024  / log 4  =  5   games
