Hey,

I'm trying to figure out how to put (the solution to) the

Josephus Problem into either an equation of a function of some sort.

**I'm starting Algebra II/10th grade, so although I understand functions I lose track of everything when logs and floors become involved.** I'd appreciate if you could please keep answers within my level of knowledge. :)

I've read and re-read the wiki article. I undertsna everything up to and including the sentence "This suggests that

*f*(

*n*) is an increasing odd sequence that restarts with

*f*(

*n*) = 1 whenever the index

*n* is a power of 2". When the variables m and l become involved - I no longer understand - what do they even stand for?

Any help is welcome, please and thank you! :)
