You have created a robot with artificial intelligence, to test his abilities you add to the robot a battery pack which can hold a maximum of 5 charges and build for him an obstacle he needs to overcome. The obstacle is a series of platforms, the only difference they have is the distance between them, which can either be a 1 length distance or a 2 length distance, for the robot to jump a 1 length distance he needs 1 battery charge and to jump a 2 length distance he needs 2 battery charges. The platforms are as follows:
So the first 5 platforms are 1 length apart and the next 4 are 2 lengths apart. Of course your superior intellect knows that this is impossible to solve so you add 2 objects to the platforms, first is a battery expansion pack which is placed on top every platform after the 5th one, every time the robot gets to a platform after the 5th one his maximum battery charge increases by 1 this expansion pack is then used up. The second object is a battery charge cell which is moved to the farthest platform the robot has reached, it gives him 1 battery charge every time he gets to the platform the cell is on, at the start this battery cell is placed on the 6th platform and stays there until the robot reaches the next platform(7th in this case). the battery charge cell needs 2 jump from the robot to recharge before it can power up the robot again.
While again you see that this is still impossible to solve, you device to also give the robot the ability to recharge his battery with jumping backwards to the previous platforms. Jumping backwards doesn't cost any charges, in addition the first jump backwards doesn't give any charge only the second jump backwards (and every jump backwards after that) gives the robot 2 charges. Everytime the robot jumps ahead this resets and the first jump backwards gives him no charge again. The last thing you decide to give the robot is the ability to move the battery charge cell one platform backwards this costs the robot 1 charge, and again every time the robot reaches a farther platform then the one the charge cell is currently on it gets moved up to platform. Jumping backwards with the cell doesn't alter the robots ability to gain charges, he does need a minimum of 1 charge to move the battery cell backwards opposed to just jumping backwards without the energy cell which costs no energy. Jumping backwards with the energy cell also counts towards the 2 jump counter that the cell needs to recharge.
Can the robot reach the 9th platform with only the things he is given? If so what is the minimum amount of jumps that the robot needs to do to reach the 9th platform?
Forgot to add, the robot starts at platform 1 and with 5 charges
Dont read this if you dont want to know if a solution actualy exists or not.
as i added in a comment already, a solution actualy exists.
This is a original puzzle i created so gl! :)
