There is a formula for calculating the number of moves. The formula is 2^n-1. This means that to move one disk the number of moves can be calculated as 2^1-1. For two disks the calculation is 2^2-1.

Using this formula the answer 1023 can be found

to find the lowest number of discs, take 2n-1 where n is the number of discs.

in simpler terms multiply 2 by itself for each disk, so for 4 discs you take 2*2*2*2, which equals 16, and subtract one, 15.

The formula to find how many moves that are needed to complete the puzzle is 2(D)+(-1) where D is the number of disks. For example, if there are 6 disks, the equation is 2 to the 6th power minus 1 which equals 64-1, or 63
