Can you help me make this into a 3 Acts problem? I was thinking some thing along these lines:
- Act 1: movie clip of someone trying to crack a combination lock. I want to set up the question “how long will it take?”
- Act 2: What are the rules for these combination locks? Maybe I could even be so lucky as to find these listed on a website with the number of permutations.
- Act 3: Which lock will take longer to crack?*
