"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The Internet is a phenominal tool for finding information.  Just learn how to use a search site--you'll save yourself lots of points.

You can find a Pascal implementation of the Josephus' algorithm at

http://picard.auto.tuwien.ac.at/~blieb/woop/josephus.html

That site gives you some clues: Flavius Josephus was a historian (with lots of talent in math) involved in the Jewish-Roman war. That war happened in the first century.

So, search again for "Flavius Josephus".

You get lots of neat hits, including this whole section at Yahoo!:

Actually, only 10.  I'd say that at that price, it was definitly worth having someone else do the work!  :-)
